Return of the Superload on Thursday March 14th


Attention drivers in Southern Ohio! Gear up for another colossal cargo is scheduled to travel through parts of Adams, Scioto, and Pike Counties on Thursday, March 14th. This “super load,” known for its immense size and weight, requires specific maneuvers and lane closures to ensure safe passage.

Plan Your Route Accordingly

The super load’s journey begins on U.S. Route 52 at approximately 7:45-8:00 am, following the departure of school buses transporting students to Manchester Local Schools. Motorists are advised to avoid this area during this time frame.

The massive load will then take a rather unconventional route, traveling westbound on U.S. Route 52 in the eastbound lanes for a short stretch before turning north onto the southbound ramp of State Route (SR) 239. It will continue north on the southbound ramp towards the junction of SR 73/SR 852.

Patience is Key

Patience will be essential for drivers encountering the super load. The colossal cargo will then travel south in the northbound lanes of SR 73/SR 852 until it reaches U.S. Route 52 once again. Here, it will head eastbound in the westbound lanes until it merges onto U.S. Route 23 in Portsmouth.

Southbound Lane Closures on U.S. Route 23

On U.S. Route 23, the super load will travel northbound in the southbound lanes until it reaches the intersection of Kinneys Lane and Argonne Road. At this point, it will carefully cross over to the northbound lanes and continue its journey towards Lucasville.

Rest Stop in Lucasville

The super load’s grand voyage will conclude with a rest stop in Lucasville, where it will remain until Friday morning.
