Temporary Lane Restrictions On Scioto-23 Today, Friday
Chillicothe (Wednesday, October 28, 2015) – Temporary lane restrictions will be in place this week on U.S. Route 23 in Scioto County as part of the Southern Ohio Veterans Memorial Highway construction project.
Today and Friday, October 28 and 30, crews from the Portsmouth Joint Venture (PJV) will close the driving lane of southbound U.S. 23 just north of Lucasville to place barrier wall along the roadway’s shoulder where interchange construction is under way.
Also on Friday, the PJV crews will close the driving lane of northbound U.S. 23 North to place barrier wall along this side of the route and adjacent to the construction site just north of Lucasville. Traffic should be restored to two lanes in either direction by early evening hours on both days.

In the spirit of a public-private partnership, the Ohio Department of Transportation and the Portsmouth Gateway Group are constructing the new state Route 823, a 16-mile, four-lane, limited access highway from U.S. 23 at Lucasville to U.S. 52 at Sciotoville in Scioto County. 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.
