Sunset Dr. Access in Norwich Closed Tuesday
Jacksontown, Ohio (Friday, April 11, 2014) –  The access point to Sunset Dr. in Norwich, located off of US Route 22/40, will close temporarily this Tuesday, April 14, for an emergency culvert replacement.
Residents of Sunset Dr. and Traci Lane will have no access to or from the subdivision between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. in order for  ODOT’s Muskingum County maintenance crew to replace the culvert located at the intersection of Sunset Dr. and US Route 22/40.
Union Township trustees will be visiting all residents of Sunset Dr. and Traci Lane this weekend to inform them of the necessity of this closure and will answer any questions residents may have.
In the sudden case of an emergency, ODOT will allow for temporary access to accommodate the needs of emergency responders.  
Traffic will be maintained on US 22/40 during this work.
