Scioto-73 Culvert Replacement Under Way
Schedule Changed For Route’s Closure
Chillicothe (Monday, June 21, 2010) B State Route 73 in Scioto County is now closed for a culvert replacement project, and the closure will be in effect through early next week.
Crews from the ODOT’s Scioto County Highway Maintenance Facility are replacing a culvert at the 13.04-mile marker on state Route 73, and the route is closed between County Road 48 (Arion Road) and Township Road 121 (Wright’s Run Road), south of Otway.
Although the closure was scheduled to be in effect through the end of the business day Friday, June 25, the planned closure has now been extended through next weekend in order to allow the concrete, which will be used to repave the roadway, additional time to cure before the route is reopened to traffic.
S.R. 73 will remain closed until the end of the business day Monday, June 28, or approximately 4 p.m., and while the route is closed, motorists will be detoured by way of state routes 348 and 104.
