Resurfacing Set To Begin This Week On Jackson-93
Chillicothe - A resurfacing project is set to begin on state Route 93 in Jackson County, with contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation scheduled to begin preliminary operations this week.
On Thursday, June 4, crews from the Shelly Company will begin site preparations for a 7.25-mile resurfacing project on Ohio-93, between the 6.31 and the 13.56-mile markers.
“Resurfacing projects are necessary to preserve the integrity of a given route, as well as for the safety of the traveling public, and with the many projects we have taking place on Route 93 this year, we appreciate motorists’ patience while construction is under way,” said ODOT District 9 Deputy Director James Brushart.
The project extends from approximately one-half mile north of County Road 130A (Harmon Road), north of Oak Hill, to County Road 55A (Stand Pipe Road), south of Jackson, and includes making necessary repairs to the route, overlaying the pavement with asphalt and paving the shoulders. Although traffic will be maintained in one lane with the use of flaggers, motorists may encounter intermittent periods of delay when crews are at work.
The Shelly Company of Thornville, Ohio, was awarded a contract in the amount of $1.279 million to complete the project, and all work is scheduled to be completed by October 31, 2009.
