S.R. 335 Daytime Restrictions Remain In Effect
Single-lane closures to continue through June
Chillicothe (Friday, May 6, 2016) – Intermittent lane restrictions on state Route 335 in Scioto County will resume next week as part of the Southern Ohio Veterans Memorial Highway construction project.
Since mid-April, restrictions on S.R. 335 have been in place between C.R. 31 (Swauger Valley Road) and C.R. 246 (Stout Hollow Road), where crews for the Portsmouth Joint Venture (PJV) have been clearing and excavating in preparation for bridge construction over the Little Scioto River.
Moving forward, crews will be working on pier construction for the bridge over S.R. 335 and the Little Scioto, and operations will be in effect from approximately 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. Traffic will be maintained by flaggers when crews are at work, and the route will be open to two-way traffic without restrictions during the evening and overnight hours.
Motorists are reminded of the need for additional caution through the entire corridor, where crews and heavy equipment are moving in and out of the various work zones.

In the spirit of a public-private partnership, the Ohio Department of Transportation and the Portsmouth Gateway Group are constructing the new state Route 823, a 16-mile, four-lane, limited access highway from U.S. 23 at Lucasville to U.S. 52 at Sciotoville in Scioto County. The Southern Ohio Veterans Memorial Highway is the department’s first P3 project and the largest, modern earthwork project to be constructed in the state’s history.
