Ross County's Rapid Forge Road Scheduled For Temporary Closure Next Week

-

Rapid Forge Road in Ross County will be closed for three days beginning next week.

-

According to the Ohio Department of Transportation, Rapid Forge Road will be closed from Monday through Wednesday, April 22nd to April 24th, between the road’s junction with U.S. Route 50 and Falls Road. That's so crews can replace the rail along the Paint Creek bridge. While that section of Rapid Forge is closed, motorists will be detoured by way of U.S. 50, S.R. 41 at Bainbridge and Falls Road.

-

Along with the work on Rapid Forge, contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation and the Ross County Engineer’s Office will also be replacing sections of guardrail at locations on Falls Road, Upper Twin Road, and Lower Twin Road. With the exception of the three-day closure of Rapid Forge Road, traffic on these routes will be maintained by flaggers and/or temporary signals as needed when crews are at work.

-

PDK Construction was awarded a contract for approximately $263,854 in the fall of 2018 to complete the project, and all work is anticipated to be completed by mid-summer.
