ODOT releases traffic advisory

Published 9:44 am Monday, August 24, 2009

LAWRENCE COUNTY — County Road 1 (Old U.S. 52) is closed between the 9.32 and 9.48-mile markers for a dual bridge replacement project.

The project site is located just south of U.S. 52 and its junction with County Road 144 (Charley Creek Road) at Sybene. Throughout construction, traffic will be detoured into the village via T.R. 276 (Sandusky Road), and all traffic will be maintained within the community. The scheduled completion date is Oct. 29.

State Route 7 is now open in two lanes near the 4.50-mile marker, between Chesapeake and State Route 243 at Bradrick, following a slip repair project. Although crews have minor finishing work to complete, there should be little impact to traffic, and traffic will be maintained by flaggers as needed.

A pavement repair and preventive maintenance project is under way on State Route 141, between State Route 217 and State Route 775.

Traffic is being maintained in one lane with the use of flaggers when crews are at work. The scheduled completion date for all work is Sept. 1.

Construction for a bridge repair and resurfacing project on U.S. Route 52 continues, and contractors will be completing paving operations from the state Route 650 exit at Hanging Rock to the eastern corporation limit of Coal Grove.

Traffic is reduced to one, 11.5-foot lane in each direction. The scheduled completion date for all work is Sept. 10.

As part of the resurfacing project on U.S. 52, two lanes of northbound traffic on the 13th Street Bridge will be reduced to one lane to mitigate traffic flow from two, left-turn lanes to a single, westbound lane onto U.S. 52.

The inside left-turn lane and the (eastbound) right-turn lane from the bridge to U.S. 52 will remain open. The lane restrictions are anticipated to be in effect through mid-August.

A signalization project is under way on U.S. 52 at the Ashland, Ky. bridge, from just east of the State Route 243/Coal Grove exit to just west of T.R. 268 (Hog Back Road).

Traffic is being maintained in at least one lane in each direction at all times and in coordination with the U.S. Route 52 resurfacing project that is also under way.
