Resurfacing Work Slated To Begin On Pike Routes
Chillicothe (Thursday, April 7, 2016) – Contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation – District 9 will resurface nearly 12 miles of pavement on two Pike County routes as construction gets under way next week.
Crews from Shelly & Sands, Inc. will be resurfacing approximately 10 miles of state Route 772, from its junction with S.R. 124 to the Ross County line, and almost two miles of S.R. 335 in the village of Waverly, from its junction with U.S. 23 to the corporation limit north of Wendy Lane.
Construction is scheduled to begin Monday, April 11, and throughout the project, motorists will encounter lane restrictions as traffic will be reduced to one lane and maintained by flaggers when crews are at work. ODOT reminds motorists of the need for additional caution when traveling through this and other work zones.
Shelly & Sands, of Columbus, Ohio, was awarded a contract in the amount of approximately $1.4 million to resurface both routes, and all work is anticipated to be completed in early summer.
