Culvert replacement on tap on State Route 141

Published 12:31pm Wednesday, August 14, 2013


A culvert replacement project has been scheduled for State Route 141 in Lawrence County, and the route will be subject to closure for up to nine days.

Crews from the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Lawrence County Highway Maintenance Facility will close State Route 141 on Monday, Aug. 19, at the 10.10-mile marker to replace a deteriorated pipe with a five-foot, elliptical concrete culvert.

The project site is located just south of Township Road 112 (Bald Knob-Dog Fork Road), between state routes 217 and 378.

The closure will go into effect at approximately 8 a.m. Monday and continue through the end of the business day Wednesday, Aug. 28. While the route is closed, motorists will be detoured via U.S. 52 to State Route 243 at Coal Grove to State Route 378 at Getaway to State Route 141 at Aid.

Completion of the project will be contingent upon the weather.
