Comments are being sought by ODOT District 3 on an upcoming project.
The proposed project is to perform maintenance on existing pavement in the form of smoothseal in Richland County on SR61, 0.03 miles north of Shelby corporate limits to the 13.18 mile marker at the Plymouth corporate limit, and on SR96 from the Shelby corporate limit to SR 13.
All work will occur within existing ODOT right-of-way. Deep excavation will not be required for the proposed work. Utilities will not be relocated because of the project. Based on this information, the project is considered exempt from further regulated material investigation.
There are no streams, wetlands or floodplains will be impacted by this project. No trees will need to be cut to construct this project.
