ODOT releases road closure, detour report

A District 9 traffic advisory has been released which includes road construction and major maintenance projects requiring lane restrictions and/or closures along the state and federal highway system within ODOT District 9.

Brown County: A sidewalk and crosswalk construction project began this week in the village of Mt. Orab. Crews will be constructing sidewalks along Boyd Road, between Longwood Boulevard and Main Street in the village. Throughout construction, there should be little to no impact to traffic; however, motorists are advised to use additional caution in the work zone. All work is anticipated to be completed in mid-summer.

A resurfacing project is under way on U.S. 62, and crews will be paving the route between its junction with U.S. 68 to the northern corporation limit of Russellville. Throughout construction, traffic will be maintained in one lane with the use of flaggers, and all work is scheduled to be completed in early fall.

State Route 763 is closed at the 11.92-mile marker, between state Route 353 and TR 221 (W. Fork Road), for a culvert replacement project. Throughout construction, traffic will be detoured by way of state Route 41 and state Route 125 in Adams County. All work is scheduled to be completed by mid-summer.

A resurfacing project is under way on U.S. 68 and U.S. 52. Crews will be paving US 52 from the western corporation limit of Higginsport to just east of TR 255 (Pisgah Hill Road) and between Main and Hanover streets in Ripley. Crews will also be paving U.S. 68 from U.S. 50 to the Brown-Clermont County line. Throughout construction, traffic will be maintained with the use of flaggers when crews are at work. The project is scheduled to be completed in mid-summer.

For statewide information regarding road conditions affected by weather, construction, maintenance or accidents, visit ODOT on the web at www.Ohgo.com. Projects are expected to be completed by mid summer or early fall.
