As a result of two decades of highway construction and changing traffic demand in Meigs County, the Ohio Department of Transportation proposes to update the State Highway System following a two week public comment period. 
The changes include the addition of State Route 733, currently identified as Chester Road and CR 7A between the Village of Pomeroy and Five Points interchange, the abandonment of State Routes 684 and 692 in the vicinity of the unincorporated community of Pageville, and the elimination of a proposed alignment for State Route 124 near the Village of Pomeroy.
The proposed changes ARE NOT associated with any current project, but are part of a systematic highway asset evaluation conducted in cooperation with local public officials.  In recognition of the current traffic volume entering Pomeroy on CR 7A, the Meigs County Commissioners and Engineer asked that the segment abandoned following completion of the Pomeroy-Middleport Bypass be restored as a state highway.  Conversely, the substantial reduction in traffic volume, particularly trucks, on State Routes 684 and 692 following the closure of the Meigs Mines warrants their transfer of jurisdiction to the Meigs County Highway System.  Likewise, a 1970’s proposal to upgrade State Route 124 and access to the new Meigs Mines included an alignment to access the Pomeroy-Mason Bridge.  While included in the State Highway System, the changing economic conditions and recent completion of the Bridge of Honor render the proposed alignment no longer prudent.
