Scioto-52 East Off-Ramp Closing Today
Chillicothe (Thursday, August 15, 2013) – The off ramp from U.S. Route 52 East to state Route 852 will be closed today, August 15, as part of an ongoing major rehabilitation project in Scioto County.
Crews from Complete General Construction will close the exit ramp (Ramp A) from U.S. 52 East to S.R. 852 (Carl Perkins Bridge) at approximately noon, and it will remain closed for up to 60 days. While the ramp is closed, motorists will be detoured via S.R. 239 to S.R. 73/104 at West Portsmouth.
Currently, U.S. 52 is reduced to one, 11-foot lane in each direction between T.R. 569 (Old U.S. 52) near the S.R. 239 interchange and the Portsmouth corporation limit for bridge rehabilitation. The project work limits will also include portions of S.R. 73, S.R. 239 and S.R. 852.
Motorists are reminded of the need for additional safety in the work zone, paying heed to crews, width restrictions and reduced speed limits.
