Route 193 section to close in Ashtabula County

A section of Route 193 in Kingsville and Sheffield townships will receive attention from the Ohio Department of Transportation this spring and summer.

Brent Kovacs, spokesman with ODOT District 4 in Akron, said motorists will encounter a detour on the state highway beginning April 8, when the first of three bridges is closed for work.

The section that will be closed is between Plymouth Ridge Road and Gageville Monroe Road. The detour will be State Route 167 to Route 7 to Route 84.

The closure is for one week, but Kovacs said the road will close again for 28 days as work gets under way on two other bridges that are part of the project.

Two of the three bridges affected by the work are over branches of the Ashtabula River, Kovacs said. One bridge is 20 feet long and its deck overlay will be replaced. The second bridge is 16 feet long and will be replaced with a culvert.

The third, a 116-foot bridge over the Ashtabula River, will receive a rail upgrade as well as repairs to the deck overlay.

Kovacs said a 3.5-mile section of the highway from just south of Interstate 90 to Sheffield Monroe Road will be resurfaced once the bridge work is completed. The entire project has a completion date of October.

Grand Valley Construction is the contractor on the $1.2 million project, Kovacs said.
