As part of the Ohio Department of Transportation District 9 2017 construction program, contractors will be paving nearly 33 miles of roadway for three separate projects in Adams County, with preliminary work already under way.
On Monday, April 10, construction will begin on SR 73, where crews from the Shelly Company will pave 15 miles of roadway through Adams County. The project extends from the Highland County to the Scioto County line, and during construction, traffic will be maintained in one lane with the use of flaggers when crews are at work.
The Shelly Company was awarded a contract for approximately $2.67 million to resurface SR 73, and the project is scheduled to be completed in early fall.
In addition, construction for an 8.2-mile resurfacing project has begun on SR 136. Crews from Brown County Asphalt will be paving the route from its junction with SR 125 to SR 32 at Winchester, and during construction, traffic will be maintained in one lane with the use of flaggers.
Brown County Asphalt was awarded a contract for $1.43 million to complete the project, and all work is anticipated to be completed by the end of June.
