Culvert Replacement On Tap For Highland-131
Chillicothe (Wednesday, July 25, 2012) – A culvert replacement project on state Route 131 in Highland County is scheduled to take place early next month, and the route will be closed for up to one week.
On Monday, August 6, crews from the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Highland County facility will close S.R. 131 at the 0.68-mile marker to replace a deteriorated culvert. The project site is located just east of the Highland-Brown County line, between Township Road 182 (Hughes Road) and T.R. 101 (Harwood Road).
The closure will go into effect at approximately 8 a.m. August 6 and continue until 4 p.m. Friday, August 10, or until all work is completed, and completion of the project will be contingent upon the weather.
While the route is closed, motorists will be detoured by way of S.R. 134, S.R. 286 and U.S. 68 in Brown County to S.R. 131.
