Route To Be Closed Next Week For Truss Installation Project
Chillicothe (Monday, August 13, 2012) – State Route 73 in Adams County will be closed one day next week in conjunction with a project to install a conveyor over the state highway.
On Tuesday, August 21, S.R. 73 will be closed at the 11.54-mile marker in order for contractors for Hanson Aggregate to install a gallery truss for the Plum Run Stone Quarry. The project site is situated between County Road 198 (Portsmouth Road) and C.R. 127 (Black Hollow Road), approximately one mile south of S.R. 32.
The closure is scheduled to be in effect from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and while it is closed, motorists will be detoured by way of Portsmouth Road and S.R. 32. Completion of the project will be contingent upon the weather.
