CHILLICOTHE, Ohio – Two road projects will be affecting traffic in Adams and Brown counties.

Ohio 770 in Adams County is currently reduced to one lane near Tranquility Pike two miles east of Ohio 247 in Seaman.

According to the Ohio Department of Transportation, the reduction is due to a pavement slip in the area. Traffic is currently being maintained in one lane with temporary signals.

The project will join an ongoing multi-phase slide repair project on Adams 100 (Old Ohio 32) between Ohio 41 and Ohio 770.

According to ODOT, that route will be closed between Marble Furnace Road and Inlow Avenue, between Lawshe and Shelby roads and between Shelby and Big Run roads.

According to ODOT, the closure will be in effect for up to 90 days and motorists will be detoured via Ohio 41, Ohio 32 and Ohio 770 while the route is closed.

All work is anticipated by ODOT to be complete in late spring.

In Brown County, a resurfacing project is scheduled to start on Monday, April 23. The work is scheduled to include pacing of Ohio 125 through Georgetown between Gillette Station Road and U.S. 68.

According to ODOT, traffic will be maintained along the route in one lane by flaggers.

Also in Brown, a bridge replacement and realignment project continues to keep Ohio 763 closed.

According to ODOT, the project site is located between Stringtown and Lawwill roads and will be in effect through early July. While the route is closed, motorists will be detoured via Ohio 41, Ohio 136 and Ohio 125.

ODOT anticipates construction to be completed in mid-summer.
