A Gallipolis City Schools bus drives through the road construction project on Ohio 160 between Brentwood Drive and Kelton Road. The Ohio Department of Transportation began the drilled shaft project in late July, closing the southbound lane of Ohio 160 to essentially stabilize the road. According to ODOT District 10’s David Rose, the project entails drilling down into the surrounding road surface and installing metal beams. The area is then filled with concrete to stabilize the road surface. Traffic signals regulate traffic through about 400 feet of one-lane road. Rose said the project, which costs about $568,700, has an expected completion date of Oct. 1.
