Through the week ending Oct. 13, the following traffic advisory includes road construction and major maintenance projects requiring longterm lane restrictions and/or closures along the state and federal highway system in Highland County. For statewide information regarding road conditions affected by weather, construction, maintenance or accidents, visit ODOT on the web at www.Ohgo.com.
As part of a realignment/widening project between SR 73 and SR 124, CProspect Road is closed between Bennington Road and Pigeon Roost Road. The intersecting roadways may also be affected by this closure, and traffic is being detoured locally. The completion date for the entire project is summer of 2019.
SR 134 has been reopened to traffic between Crampton Road and Kier Road, approximately 1.5 miles south of Lynchburg, following a bridge replacement project. Crews have minor finishing work to complete; however, there should be little to no impact to motorists, and traffic will be maintained by flaggers when crews are at work.
SR138 is closed between McWilliams Road and SR 753, approximately one mile west of Greenfield, for a bridge replacement project. The closure is scheduled to be in effect for up to 30 days, and while the route is closed, motorists will be detoured via SR 28 and SR 771; a local detour will also be established. All work associated with the project is scheduled to be completed in early fall.
A bridge replacement project is under way on U.S. Route 50 between Spickard Road and Danville Road, near the community of Fairview. Throughout construction, traffic will be maintained in one, 10-foot lane with temporary signals, and the project is anticipated to be completed in early fall.
U.S. Route 62 is reduced to one, 10-foot lane between Selph Road and Surber Lane, approximately one mile north of Hillsboro, for a bridge replacement project. Throughout construction, traffic will be maintained with temporary signals, and the project is scheduled to be completed in mid-fall.
