CHILLICOTHE, Ohio – A road project in Brown County is set to begin at the end of the month.

A resurfacing project is scheduled to begin June 25 on Ohio 125 and Ohio 774 in Brown County. According to the Ohio Department of Transportation, crews will be paving Ohio 125 from U.S. 68 to the Adams County line, as well as Ohio 774 between Ohio 125 and U.S. 68.

Throughout construction on either route, traffic will be maintained In one lane by flaggers. The project is scheduled by ODOT to be completed in late summer.

The project joins several others in Brown County.

Ohio 763 around one mile north of Ohio 41 remains closed for a bridge replacement and realignment project. The project site is located between Stringtown and Lawwill Roads, according to ODOT.

The road will remain closed until early July, and motorists will be detoured via Ohio 41, Ohio 136 and Ohio 125. Construction is anticipated to be complete by midsummer.

A resurfacing project on Ohio 125 and U.S. 68 continues as crews pave Ohio 125 through Georgetown and U.S. 68 between its junction with Ohio 125 and U.S. 62.

Traffic along the route is being maintained in one lane by flaggers when crews are at work. ODOT anticipates the project to be complete in late fall.

A preservation project on Ohio 125 continues as crews complete paving and finish work between Gillette Station and Old Infirmary roads. Traffic is being maintained in one, 12-foot lane with the use of flaggers as needed.
