Chillicothe (Friday, March 16, 2012) – A construction project on state Route 32 in Adams County is set to begin, with contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation mobilizing crews early next month.
According to ODOT - District 9 Deputy Director Vaughn Wilson, crews from the Shelly Company will be resurfacing an approximately 6.5-mile section of the route between the Adams-Brown County line and state Route 247 at Seaman.
