Submitted story

As part of the Ohio Department of Transportation – District 9 Planning Department, the district’s environmental office is seeking public input for a culvert replacement project on SR 41 in Highland County.

The project is to replace a culvert located on SR 41, approximately one-half mile north of SR 124 and near the community of Sinking Spring. The existing structure is a 72-inch corrugated metal pipe, and the new culvert will be a 66-inch conduit with full-height headwalls.

The project will require approximately 0.454 acres of permanent right of way; however, no homes or businesses will be removed as a result of construction. Currently, a contract is anticipated to be awarded in the spring of 2020, and a closure of the route may be required during some phases of construction.

Additional information, including a complete description, maps and plans sheets, is available online at Issues the public may wish to comment on include the effect on local residents, air quality, the local economy, and historic or cultural resources.

Written comments should be submitted by Nov. 23, 2018, or the deadline date that is posted on the web site, to: Greg Manson, ODOT District 9 environmental supervisor.

Submitted by Ohio Department of Transporation.
