Submitted story

Crews from ODOT’s Highland County Highway Maintenance Facility will be replacing a culvert on SR 72 this week, requiring a two-day closure of the route.

On Tuesday, June 4, SR 72 will be closed between SR 28 and Oak Grove Road, just south of the Clinton County line, to replace a deteriorated pipe at the 5.87-mile marker.

The closure will go into effect at approximately 8 a.m. Tuesday and continue through 4 p.m. Wednesday, June 5, or until all work is completed. While the route is closed, motorists will be detoured via SR 28, SR 73 and SR 729 in Clinton County.
