CHILLICOTHE – An emergency repair of the Adena Road bridge over U.S. 35 is scheduled to begin May 2. The overpass was closed March 29 following discovery that the bridge had been hit in an unreported incident resulting in severe damage to one of the bridge beams. The road will remain closed until repairs can be completed.
A contractor has been selected to perform the work, which is scheduled to take about 3-4 weeks to complete once the project begins. During the project, traffic on U.S. 35 westbound will be reduced to one lane between S.R. 104 and Pleasant Valley Road, and the on-ramp from S.R. 104 to U.S. 35 Westbound will be closed.
Adena Road Detour: Traffic can detour via Orange Street, Piatt Avenue, Buckeye Street, S.R. 104, and Pleasant Valley Road.
U.S. 35 Westbound On-Ramp Detour: Traffic will be detoured via U.S. 35 Eastbound to Bridge Street
