The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) has awarded $4 million in contracts for three resurfacing projects in Scioto County. The roads slated to be resurfaced include State Route 73, State Route 104 and the intersection of State Route 140 and State Route 335.
“We are expecting the State Route 73 resurfacing project to wrap up by late summer,” said Kathleen Fuller, ODOT District 9 spokeswoman. “The State Route 73 resurfacing project will be roughly between Henley-Comstock Rd, and just about to State Route 104.”
The estimated cost for this project is $1.7 million. The project would resurface nearly nine miles of roadway. A contract was awarded to the Shelly Company to do the work.
Fuller said crews are back working on the State Route 139 slip repair.
She said despite the delays the project has seen, crews are now on track to finish the project as scheduled.
“The State Route 104 resurfacing project starts at State Route 73 and will go to the Pike County line. This project would resurface a little over 11 miles and is expected to cost $1.9 million,” Fuller said.
According to Fuller, a start date for the project has yet to be set.
“There is a good chance this project will get started in August,” Fuller said. “We are resurfacing a very small section of State Route 140. We are going to resurface two-tenths of a mile on this road. The area will be from State Route 52 to the edge of the corporation limit at Portsmouth. On State Route 335 the resurfacing project is under two miles.”
She said the State Route 140 and State Route 335 is being estimated to cost $377.225. Fuller said a start date for the State Route 140 and State Route 335 project has also not been set.
