Road slip in Ohio to be repaired this summer

May 19, 2019

CHESAPEAKE, Ohio — A dangerous slip on County Road 2 (Greasy Ridge Road) is on schedule to be repaired this summer, according to Lawrence County Engineer Patrick Leighty.

“The project is going out for bid Friday,” Leighty said. “It’s in pretty bad shape. We’ll get to it this year.”

The slip repair is expected to cost around $234,000, Leighty said Thursday. The slip is located on County Road 2 about a mile off Ohio 243, he said.

Providing the project comes in under bid, work could start on slip repairs by July 1, Leighty said.

The slip has been causing problems for about a year, said Dotty Brammer, a Chesapeake area resident who goes to a church along County Road 2.

“It’s in very bad shape,” she said. “It’s gotten progressively worse.”

The slip is so dangerous that Chesapeake school buses avoid that section of the road, she said.
