2018 Road and Bridge Construction in Ross County, Ohio

     The following roads are where we have work planned for this year.  This work can at times unavoidably cause road closures or travel delays.  We do our best to avoid these, but we will try to help you plan ahead by listing work that might impact your travel plans on our Work Schedule link.  We make every effort to list them in time to help you plan your times of travel and routes that you take.

     We ask for your patience and caution as you travel, for your safety, and the safety of those doing the work.

     Thank you!
