Slip Repair Set To Begin On S.R. 125 Near West Union
Chillicothe (Wednesday, August 15, 2012) – A construction project is slated to begin in Adams County as contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will impart lane restrictions next week for a slip repair on state Route 125.
On Wednesday, August 22, crews from the Alan Stone Company will reduce S.R. 125 at the 13.85-mile marker to one, 10-foot lane. Situated approximately four miles east of the village of West Union, the project site is located between County Road 56 (Frank Young Road) and Township Road 73 (Satterfield Road).
Alan Stone, of Cutler, Ohio was awarded a contract in the amount of approximately $455,455.10 to correct the slide, which includes installing drilled shafts and repairing the pavement. Throughout construction, traffic will be maintained in one lane with the use of temporary traffic signals.
All work is anticipated to be completed by late October or early November.
