The Portsmouth Bypass project is being developed by the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) and involves the design and construction of a limited-access, four-lane divided highway around the City of Portsmouth in Scioto County. The project extends from U.S. Route 52 east of Portsmouth (Wheelersburg) north to the Minford area crossing State Route 139, then west to U.S. Route 23 north of Portsmouth (Lucasville). Interchanges will be constructed at U.S. Route 52, Webster Street (State Route 140), Airport Road, Lucasville-Minford Road (County Route 28), and at U.S. Route 23.
ODOT and its project team have begun final design activities for the bypass. This work includes development of the detailed drawings that will be used to construct the highway, along with right-of-way plans that will be used for acquisition of private properties that will be needed for the facility.
