Paving Work To Begin On S.R. 327

Construction will get under way on state Route 327 in Jackson County next week, as contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will be paving the route in Wellston.

On Monday, August 27, crews from Nuko Paving will be resurfacing S.R. 327 between the route’s junction with S.R. 124, south of S.R. 32, and the north corporation limit. More specifically, the project will extend from just south of County Road 78 (Fairgreens Road) to S.R. 93 (13th Street) and then continue along Broadway Street and Minnesota Avenue to the city’s corporation limit, west of Golden Rocket Drive.

Throughout construction, traffic will be maintained in one lane with the use of flaggers. Temporary signals will also be installed from 15th to 13th Streets, where the contractors will be repairing bridge joints and performing surface repairs on the structure.

Although the route will remain open to traffic, motorists are advised to expect temporary periods of delay and to use additional caution through the work zone.

Nuko Paving, Inc. was awarded a contract for $1,070,493 to complete the project, and all work is scheduled to be completed in early fall.
