U.S. 52 Resurfacing Project On Tap
Chillicothe (Thursday, April 26, 2012) – Construction for a resurfacing project on U.S. 52 in Brown County is slated to begin next month, as contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation have established a May 7 start date.
Weather permitting, crews from the Brown County Construction Company will begin the paving project that will extend from the route’s 16.34-mile marker near Township Road 232 (Logan Gap Road) to the 21.05-mile marker to just east of state Route 41 at Aberdeen.
Construction is set to begin Monday, May 7, and throughout the project, traffic will be maintained in a minimum of one lane and with the aid of flaggers as needed when crews are at work.
Brown County Construction was awarded a contract in the amount of approximately $1.9 million in early March to resurface the route, and while the scheduled completion date is October 31, it is anticipated to be completed in advance of this date.
