ODOT Seeks Comments on US Route 250 Improvements in Erie County
Ashland (Wednesday, February 12, 2014) – The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is proposing improvements to US Route 250 at the 9.78 mile marker.
ODOT intends to replace the existing 42” culvert pipe with a 48” culvert pipe. The new culvert will be located approximately five feet south of the existing culvert on similar alignment. The project will take place at the 9.78 mile marker and will require approximately .03 acres of right-of-way.
Construction is anticipated to begin in April 13, 2015. During the construction of this project a detour will not be needed.
As part of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), we are seeking comments from the public about the social, environmental and economic impacts of the proposed project. Environmental impacts include those associated with historical, archeological and ecological resources, hazardous materials and general concerns you may have with the project. Written comments concerning the proposed project may be mailed to Levi Wingler, District Environmental Specialist at the above address. We can also be contacted by telephone at (800) 276-4188 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any comments must be received by February 21, 2014.
