As part of the Ohio Department of Transportation - District 9’s Planning & Engineering Department, the district’s Environmental Office is seeking public input for a bridge replacement project on State Route 772 in Pike County.
It is proposed to rehabilitate the structure at the 7.89-mile marker on State Route 772, situated between T.R. 331 (Strutt Road) and C.R. 85 (Tennyson Road), south of State Route 32 in Sunfish Township. Built in 1969, the existing structure is a corrugated metal pipe arch, and it will be lined with a 90-inch pipe liner. The project also includes 25 feet of rock channel protection at the outlet of the structure.
The project will not require any new right of way, and no homes or businesses will be removed as a result of the project. A contract is scheduled to be awarded in the summer of 2018, and although a full closure of the route during construction is not anticipated, short-term, intermittent periods of closure may be needed during some phases of the project.
Additional information, including a complete description, maps and plans sheets, is available online at www.dot.state.oh.us/districts/D09/Pages/Public-Involvement-Process.aspx. Issues the public may wish to comment on include the effect on local residents, air quality, the local economy, and historic or cultural resources.
Written comments should be submitted by November 22, 2017, or the deadline date that is posted on the web site, to: Greg Manson, ODOT District 9 Environmental Supervisor P.O. Box 467; 650 Eastern Avenue, Chillicothe, Ohio 45601 and E-Mail: email@example.com
