Road Closure on SR 219 Extended
Between Wabash Road and St. Peter Road
Mercer County (Wednesday, August 29, 2012) – The road closure on SR 219 in both directions between Wabash Road and St. Peters Road originally scheduled for completion August 30th has been extended.  The affected section of SR 219 is now scheduled to reopen to motorists September 7th.   This will be a 24 hour a day closure.  The entire project is scheduled for completion in September of 2012.
 
This road closure is due to a contractor performing a bridge repair.
 
The official detour during the closure is:  SR 118 to SR 29 to SR 49.
 
Signs will be in place prior to the work zone to alert motorists of the upcoming closure.  All work is weather permitting.
 
Safety is a top priority at ODOT.  To help ensure the safety of the construction workers as well as the traveling public, motorists should remain alert, reduce their speed and watch for stopped traffic while passing through the work zone.
