Seven-Mile Paving Project Set To Begin On Lawrence-243
Chillicothe (Friday, April 15, 2016) – Operations will get under way later this month for a seven-mile, two-lane resurfacing project on state Route 243 in Lawrence County.
Beginning Monday, April 25, contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will begin a paving project on S.R. 243 that extends from the route’s junction with U.S. Route 52 at Coal Grove to just east of Township Road 117 (Corbin Creek Road).
The project also includes the minor rehabilitation and repair of 10 structures between U.S. 52 and Corbin Creek, and throughout construction, traffic will be maintained by flaggers when crews are at work.
The Shelly Company, of Thornville, Ohio was awarded a contract for approximately $1.45 million to complete the project, and all work is scheduled to be completed in early summer.
