Upcoming Closures Planned For S.R. 505
Route Open For Evening, Weekend Traffic
Chillicothe (Friday, April 16, 2010) – Crews from the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Brown County Highway Maintenance Facility have completed another week of culvert replacements on state Route 505, and the route is open to weekend traffic.
Maintenance forces will continue their efforts to replace a series of deteriorated pipes situated between U.S. Route 52 at Higginsport and S.R. 125 near Hamersville, working northward each day weather permits and closing the route to traffic during daytime, business hours.
On Monday, April 19, S.R. 505 will be closed again from approximately 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. and then reopened to evening and overnight travel. Subsequent single-day closures will occur as weather and the availability of materials permit. During periods of closure, motorists will be detoured via U.S. 52 to S.R. 133 and S.R. 125 in Clermont County.
