Resurfacing Project To Get Under Way Next Week
Pike County's S.R. 220 To Be Paved
Chillicothe (Friday, April 13, 2012) – A resurfacing project on state Route 220 in Pike County is scheduled to begin next week.
Contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will be paving the route between its junction with S.R. 772 and Waverly’s western corporation limit. Weather permitting, construction is set to begin Monday, April 16, and traffic will be maintained with the use of flaggers when crews are at work.
The Shelly Company of Thornville, Ohio, was awarded a contract for approximately $992,512 to resurface approximately seven miles of the route, and construction is anticipated to be completed by late November.
