Traffic Signals In Operation Early Next Month
Chillicothe (Friday, February 22, 2013) – A slip repair project is slated to begin on state Route 650 in Lawrence County, and contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will impart lane restrictions early next month.
According to Ohio Department of Transportation - District 9 Deputy Director Vaughn Wilson, crews from DGM, Incorporated will begin preliminary operations on Monday, March 4, to correct a slip area at the route’s 3.50-mile marker, which is between Township Road 218 (Tunnel Ridge Road) and County Road 25 (Pine Grove-Smokey Row Road), approximately three miles north of Hanging Rock.
Throughout construction, traffic will be maintained in one, 9-foot lane with the use of temporary traffic signals. DGM was awarded a contract for approximately $310,755 to complete the repairs, and it is anticipated to be completed in early summer.
