Three sections of SR 41 in Adams and Brown Counties will be closed for repair and reconstruction during the summer months, according to officials from the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT).
“It’s two different projects and two different contractors that will effect the entire route between West Union and Aberdeen this summer,” said Kathleen Fuller, Public Information Officer for ODOT District 9.
Construction is scheduled to begin May 30 to replace the culverts at Roush Hill Road and Ripley Pike. Originally scheduled for back to back repairs that would have closed the road for 90 days, ODOT has announced the work will instead be done simultaneously.
“In Adams County we’re working with contractors because we’re going to have a good portion of 41 closed between West Union and Aberdeen,” said Fuller. “It’s a pretty significant closure so we’re working with the contractors to try and expedite the project by tightening up the time frame.”
Local detours are in place for the project, but through traffic is being advised to take SR 136 and U.S. 52 to get to Aberdeen, Fuller said.
Operations are already underway on SR 41 between Bentonville and Aberdeen for a realignment/reconstruction project at the intersection of Slickaway Road and SR 763. During the first phase of construction traffic was maintained by flaggers, however, beginning Monday, May 1 the road will be closed for 160 days while the work is being completed.
