The office of the Richland County Engineer is seeking comment on a proposed resurfacing of Bellville-Johnsville and Lexington-Ontario Roads this fall.
The Bellville-Johnsville project would begin at the Morrow/Richland County line and end at State Route 546, and the Lexington-Ontario repaving would go from the Village of Lexington corporation line to Millsboro East Road.
The work includes milling the top surface and replacing the same with a new two inch asphalt surface.
To the greatest extent possible, work will occur within existing rights-of-way with no utility relocation or disruption. No wetlands, threatened or endangered plant or animal species, or historic properties or districts will be impacted.
Traffic will be maintained in both directions with one lane closures and the use of traffic control devices and flaggers. Work will begin in September and end by November.
Written comments on this project should be sent to Delaton Luna, Project Manager, 77 North Mulberry Street, Mansfield, Ohio 44902. You can contact the Engineer’s Office at: 419.774.5591 or by email at: [email protected]
