Signals Set To Be Changed At Ohio-139 & Rosemount Road
Chillicothe (December 9, 2016) – As part of an upcoming construction project, a traffic signal at state Route 139 and County Road 377 (Rosemount-Selby Road) in Scioto County is under review for removal, and the signal will be set to flashing mode next week.
On Monday, December 12, Ohio Department of Transportation crews will set the signal to flashing mode, with S.R. 139 traffic given a continuous movement with a yellow flashing light. The signal for Rosemount Road traffic will be set to a flashing red light, and motorists will be required to stop. Along with the signal changes, though, the speed limit on S.R. 139 will remain at 35 miles per hour.
During the 2017 construction season, ODOT will undertake a bridge replacement at the intersection of S.R. 139 and Rosemount Road. The project will also include replacing the stop-and-go signal with an overhead flasher and reconstructing the pavement at the intersection.
In preparation for the project, which is scheduled to sell in mid-winter, a signal warrant analysis was completed in 2014 and again in 2016, and no signal warrants were met. Therefore, the signals are being set to flashing in order to proceed with the signal removal study prior to construction.
Motorists on S.R. 139 and Rosemount Road are reminded to use additional caution.
The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable federal environmental laws for these projects are being, or have been, carried out by ODOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 11, 2015, and executed by FHWA and ODOT.
