CHILLICOTHE – Two road projects will impact travel in Adams and Brown counties.

According to the Ohio Department of Transportation, Ohio 125 in Brown County has been reduced to one lane due to a pavement slip.

The route was reduced to one lane between Paeltz Road and Oak Woods Road approximately two miles east of Russellville, where a slip occurred along the shoulder of the road.

According to ODOT, crews from ODOT’s Brown County Highway Maintenance Facility will be working to restore the route in early May as weather and equipment scheduling permit. In the meantime, traffic will be maintained in one lane by temporary signals.

In Adams County, a maintenance project will take place on Ohio 247 next week that will reduce the route to one lane while crews are at work.

During the week of April 23, crews from the Adams County Highway Maintenance Facility will be slot paving Ohio 247 (Main Street) between Ohio 770 and Ohio 32 in the Village of Seaman.

According to ODOT, crews will be working from approximately 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day, and traffic will be maintained by flaggers during hours of operation.

Motorists may encounter intermittent periods of delay along the route. ODOT anticipates all work associated with the project to be completed by Friday, April 27.
