Temporary, Daytime Restrictions Scheduled For Ohio-335
Chillicothe (Friday, April 8, 2016) – Intermittent lane restrictions will be imparted on state Route 335 in Scioto County beginning next week as part of the Southern Ohio Veterans Memorial Highway construction project.
Beginning Monday, April 11, and continuing through early May, crews for the Portsmouth Joint Venture (PJV) will be clearing and excavating along S.R. 335, between C.R. 31 (Swauger Valley Road) and C.R. 246 (Stout Hollow Road), in preparation for bridge construction over the Little Scioto River.
Operations will take place during from approximately 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, and traffic will be maintained by flaggers when crews are at work. The route will be open to two-way traffic without restrictions during the evening and overnight hours.
Motorists are reminded of the need for additional caution through the entire corridor, where crews and heavy equipment are moving in and out of the various work zones. And for more information regarding the Scioto-823 project, visit the Portsmouth Gateway Group’s web site at www.pgg823.com

The Southern Ohio Veterans Memorial Highway is the department’s first P3 project and the largest, modern earthwork project to be constructed in the state’s history.
