SOVMH: Restrictions To Be Imparted On Kinstler Road
Roadway subject to temporary flagging operation tomorrow
Chillicothe (Tuesday, August 2, 2016) – Temporary, intermittent restrictions will be imparted on Township Road 338 (Kinstler Road) tomorrow as part of the Southern Ohio Veterans Memorial Highway construction project.
On Wednesday, August 3, crews for the Portsmouth Joint Venture (PJV) will be excavating, milling and paving a section of Kinstler Road, just north of its junction with T.R. 158 (Thomas Hollow Road).
Crews will be working from approximately 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., and traffic will be maintained in one lane by flaggers throughout the day. Motorists, however, are advised that they may encounter short-term periods of delay at any time during operations.
Motorists are also reminded of the need for additional caution throughout the corridor, where crews and heavy equipment are moving in and out of the work zone.
In the spirit of a public-private partnership, the Ohio Department of Transportation and the Portsmouth Gateway Group are constructing the new state Route 823, a 16-mile, four-lane, limited access highway from U.S. 23 at Lucasville to U.S. 52 at Sciotoville in Scioto County. The Southern Ohio Veterans Memorial Highway is the department’s first P3 project and the largest, modern earthwork project to be constructed in the state’s history.
