Resurfacing, Bridge Rehab Set To Begin On Brown-52
Construction also under way on U.S. 68
Chillicothe (September 26, 2016) – A resurfacing and bridge repair project will soon be under way on U.S. Route 52 in Brown County as contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation – District 9 begin construction later this week.
Crews from the Brown County Asphalt will be paving U.S. 52 from Hanover Street in Ripley to the western corporation limit of Aberdeen. Construction also includes repairs on U.S. 68 to the approaches of the U.S. 52 overpass to the William Harsha Bridge.
The contractors are scheduled to begin Friday, September 30, and while crews are at work, traffic will be reduced to one lane and maintained by flaggers.
The Brown County Asphalt Company was awarded a contract in the amount of approximately $506,458 to complete the project, and all work is anticipated to be completed in late October.
In a separate project, Brown County Asphalt crews have begun resurfacing U.S. 68, from approximately two miles north of Georgetown to the northern corporation limit of Mt. Orab. Construction also includes rehabilitating bridges and installing ADA ramps in Mt. Orab.
Throughout construction of this $1.06 million project, traffic will be maintained in one lane with the use of flaggers, and all work is scheduled to be completed by mid-November.
