Resurfacing project is set to begin
A resurfacing project is set to begin on approximately 10.5 miles of Ohio 32 and 73 in Adams County, with preliminary operations already under way.
Crews from the Shelly Company, of Thornville, have begun removing raised pavement markers and making surface repairs for a paving project that will begin in the coming week. The project calls for the placement of asphalt overlay, RPM replacement and striping on Ohio 32 between its junction with Ohio 73 and the Pike County line, as well as on Ohio 73 from Ohio 32 to the Scioto County line.
Motorists may encounter some intermittent periods of delay while crews are working in the project zones; however, Ohio 32 traffic will be maintained in at least one lane in each direction at all times, and Ohio 73 traffic will be maintained in one lane with the use of flaggers.
The Shelly Company was awarded the contract in the amount of approximately $745,000 to complete the project, and all work is expected to be completed by early summer.
In a separate project, the Shelly Company will continue with a preventive maintenance project on the northern portion of Ohio 73 in Adams County. The 10.26-mile chip-seal project extends from the Highland County line to just north of Ohio 32.
Traffic will be maintained in one lane with the use of flaggers when crews are at work, and the project is scheduled to be completed by June 15.
