Overnight Lane Closures Scheduled This Week
Ross-23 Restrictions In Effect Tonight
Chillicothe (Wednesday, September 12, 2012) – Lane restrictions on U.S. 23 in Ross County will go into effect this evening as part of the ongoing resurfacing project between the Scioto River Bridge at the U.S. 35 split and the Three Locks Road/S.R. 104 exit.
Contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will impart additional restrictions each night this week, with the route reduced to one lane in each direction for joint repair, saw cutting and paving operations. The single-lane restriction in either the north or southbound lanes will be within the six-lane section of the highway, between the splits of the bypass.
Weather permitting, operations will be in effect from approximately 6 p.m. Wednesday to 2 p.m. Thursday, and the schedule will be repeated again Thursday and Friday. Crews are also scheduled to work from 6 p.m. Friday night until 10 a.m. Saturday.
Motorists are advised to expect periods of delay and to exercise additional caution when traveling through the construction zone.
