ODOT Project to Replace the SR-29 Bridge Deck over I-70​ PID 104867

 

A future ODOT project will replace the SR-29 bridge deck over I-70, make improvements to the bridge approach, and pave the interchange ramps in Madison County.  The project also includes ditch cleanout between Snyder Lane and I-70.  Construction is anticipated to begin in spring 2021.

 

 

ODOT District 6 is seeking public input regarding the project. Comments may be sent to Amy Turner (Amy.Turner@dot.ohio.gov, 740-833-8240) through April 24, 2020.

ODOT and the city of Whitehall held a stakeholder meeting on Jan. 22, 2020 to share information about a proposed safety project to reduce crashes and provide better access to E. Main St. and S. Hamilton Rd. The project team has studied current traffic patterns and safety issues and developed the following alternatives:

Alternative 1A: Main St. | Hamilton Rd.
Alternative 1B: Main St. | Hamilton Rd.
Alternative 2: Main St. | Hamilton Rd.
Alternative 3: Main St. | Hamilton Rd.

Please review the alternatives and submit your comment by March 9, 2020 to rebecca.wagner@dot.ohio.gov or mail to:

Another phase of the Interstate 70/71 project in downtown Columbus will begin next year in 2020. This project will reconstruct and widen I-70 east/I-71 north, requiring construction of a new eastbound bridge over the Scioto River. To build the new bridge over the river, the Lower Scioto Bikeway needs to be realigned. The bikeway will be closed for two weeks while this reconstruction occurs. To minimize the impact of the closure, an alternate route for cyclists will be constructed before this closure occurs.​

Questions about the project can be directed to Leslie Montgomery by calling 740-833-8269 or email leslie.montgomery@dot.ohio.gov

An ODOT project to improve the intersection of US 36 and Condit Road in Delaware County next summer requires a small highway easement on land that's to be developed into a multi-use trail. ODOT has coordinated the project with the lane owner, Preservation Parks of Delaware County, and determined that construction will not impact the recereational facilities.

An ODOT project to stabilize the embankment along SR 315 requires an easement from Bieber Mill, which is a recognized Section 4(f) property. Section 4(f) refers to the original section of the Department of Transportation Act of 1966, which provides for consideration of park and recreation lanes, wildlife and waterfowl refuges and historic sites during transportation project development.
