Slide Repair Slated For Construction On Pike-104
Chillicothe (Sunday, February 16, 2014) – Construction will get under way this week on state Route 104 in Pike County as contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation undertake an embankment and slide repair project along the Scioto River.
On Monday, February 17, crews from Shelly and Sands, Inc. will start construction to correct the slope at the 4.6-mile marker on S.R. 104, which is located just north of County Road 21 (Sunfish Creek Road). Construction includes placing rock channel protection along the slope of the route's east (northbound) side.
Throughout construction, a minimum of one lane of traffic will be maintained with the aid of flaggers and temporary traffic controls, and there should be little impact to traffic during the first phase of the project.
Shelly and Sands was awarded a contract in the amount of approximately $731,409 in October, and the project is anticipated to be completed by early summer.
