Resurfacing, Rehab Project Starting On U.S. 23
Chillicothe (Thursday, April 26, 2012) – A resurfacing and rehabilitation project is about to start on U.S. Route 23 in Ross County, and contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will impart lane restrictions in the construction zone early next week.
On Monday, April 30, crews from Shelly and Sands Incorporated will reduce U.S. 23 to one lane in each direction to begin pavement repairs for the start of a four-mile, or approximately 20-lane mile, resurfacing project.
The work zone will extend from the Scioto River Bridge near the U.S. 35 bypass split to the Three Locks Road/South Bridge Street exit at Chillicothe, and throughout construction, traffic will be maintained in one, 12-foot lane in each direction.
Shelly and Sands Inc. was awarded a contract for approximately $7.4 million in March, and the entire project is anticipated to be completed in late November of this year.
For additional information on lane and road closures caused by construction, accidents, flooding or other related traffic events throughout the state, visit Buckeye Traffic on ODOT’s web site at www.buckeyetraffic.org.
