Ross-159/Delano Road Signal Ready For Operation
Chillicothe (Thursday, October 31, 2013) – Motorists on state Route 159 in Ross County will face a change in traffic control early next month as the installation of a signal is nearly complete and the signal is ready for operation.
Crews from the Complete General Construction Company have installed a traffic signal at the intersection of S.R. 159 and Township Road 236 (Delano Road), approximately three miles north of Chillicothe. According to Ohio Department of Transportation – District 9 Deputy Director Vaughn Wilson, the signal will be in stop-and-go operation effective Tuesday, November 12.
“The signal, which was installed to improve safety and better mitigate traffic at this busy intersection, will be in full service once a burn test has been completed,” said Wilson. Currently, the signal is in flashing mode in order to examine the signals’ operation and prepare motorists of the upcoming change.
Complete General of Columbus, Ohio, was awarded a contract in the amount of $143,648.64 to install the signal and lighting, and all associated work should be completed by late November.
Motorists are advised to exercise additional caution when traveling through this area due to the change in traffic control.
