Scioto-348 Paving Rescheduled
Closure to be in effect Friday night

Chillicothe (Thursday, June 12, 2014)Due to weather-related issues earlier in the week, paving operations on the S.R. 348 Scioto River bridge at Lucasville have been postponed by one day.

Contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation were scheduled to close the route tonight, June 12, at 10 p.m. in order to pave the bridge where a rehabilitation project is under way.  However, inclement weather this week has caused delay for the contractors and their subcontractors, thereby pushing the overnight closure back a day.

Weather permitting, the closure will now go into effect at 10 p.m. Friday, June 13, and continue until approximately 4 a.m. Saturday. While the route is closed, traffic will be detoured via S.R. 104 North to S.R. 32 East and U.S. 23 South.

Shelly and Sands was awarded a contract for approximately $2.6 million to rehabilitate the four-span structure that is located immediately east of S.R. 104 and just west of U.S. 23. Throughout construction, S.R. 348 is being maintained in one lane with temporary signals.
