U.S. Route 62 Reopens Following Emergency Work
Contractors Continue Repairs On S.R. 125
Chillicothe (Thursday, July 23, 2015) – U.S. Route 62 in Brown County is now open following an emergency repair project at the route’s 14.45-mile marker.
Crews from Brown County Asphalt have been working on U.S. 62 between C.R. 36 (Gooselick Road) and C.R. 15 (George Miller Road), south of Russellville, to replace a culvert and repair the pavement that washed out and became significantly damaged during severe storms that hit the area Saturday, July 18.
Following efforts this week to expedite the repairs, the route is now open to traffic, and although the contractors will continue working through the area as part of an ongoing resurfacing project, traffic will be maintained in one lane with flaggers when crews are at work.
In addition to the work on U.S. 62, emergency repairs continue on S.R. 125 between C.R. 18 (Eden Road) and S.R. 221 at Georgetown, where the asphalt buckled and was torn from its base during last weekend’s storms. The route is open, and traffic will be maintained in at least one lane in each direction while crews from the Shelly Company continue to pave and repair the curb.
