Restriction Required For Brown-52 Slip Project
Route Subject To Intermittent Periods Of Closure Wednesday Night
 
Chillicothe (Monday, February 06, 2012) –  As part of an ongoing slip repair project on U.S. Route 52 in Brown County, contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will impart additional traffic restrictions in the construction zone this week.
 
Beginning at 10 p.m. Wednesday, February 8, crews from Sunesis Construction Company will close U.S. 52 intermittently at various times during a four-hour period in order to complete underdrain work in the eastbound lanes of U.S. 52. The temporary periods of closure are scheduled to be in effect from approximately 10 p.m. Wednesday until 2 a.m. Thursday, and the duration of each closure is anticipated to be between 15 and 30 minutes.
 
As these will be short-term closures, there will be no posted detour; however, motorists are advised to seek alternate routes during this period of time in order to avoid delay.
 
Sunesis Construction is repairing a slip at the 16.02-mile marker, between T.R. 232 (Logan Gap Road) and T.R. 573 (Three Mile Creek Road), just east of Ripley, and traffic is being maintained in one, 10-foot lane with the use of temporary signals.
