As part of the Ohio Department of Transportation – District 9’s Planning Department, the district’s Environmental Office is seeking public input for a bridge rehabilitation project on U.S. Route 35 in Jackson County.
It is proposed to rehabilitate the structure located at the 0.41-mile marker, between Township Road 514 (Wilson Road) and County Road 27 (Bronx Corner Road) and just east of the Jackson-Ross Count line in Jackson Township. The project consists of lining the existing 72-inch corrugated metal pipe with a 60-inch pipe liner and replacing the headwalls.
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 closure of the route will not be necessary, short-term lane restrictions will be in effect during construction.
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 January 5, 2018 to:
Greg Manson, ODOT District 9 Environmental Supervisor
