State Route 93 slip repair slated to begin


DECATUR TOWNSHIP — A slip repair project is slated to begin on State Route 93 near the Elizabeth/Decatur township line in the near future.

Contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will commence lane restrictions Thursday.

According to Ohio Department of Transportation – District 9 Deputy Director Vaughn Wilson, crews from Shelly and Sands Incorporated will begin operations and reduce traffic to one, nine-foot lane at the route’s 14-mile marker.

The project site is situated between the route’s north and south junction with State Route 373, north of Pedro and County Road 41 (Buckhorn Superior Road). Throughout construction, traffic will be maintained with the use of temporary traffic signals.

Shelly and Sands was awarded a contract in the amount of $382,000 to complete the project, and it is anticipated to be completed by late July or early August.
