ODOT seeks comments on Reed Road bridge project over Interstate 77 in Tuscarawas County
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Monday, January 24, 2011) – The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) District 11 is proposing a bridge improvement project on Reed Road (Township Road 420) over Interstate 77 just north of the Strasburg Exit in Tuscarawas County.
The project will rehabilitate the structure by removing and replacing the existing bridge deck. It may also involve the realignment of the intersection of TR 420 and County Road 102 (Fort Laurens Road), which would require minor right of way to complete the project. At least one lane of traffic will be maintained during construction anticipated to begin in the spring of 2012.
ODOT is seeking comments from the public about the social, environmental, and economic impacts of the proposed project. Environmental impacts include impacts associated with architectural and ecological resources, hazardous materials, and the general location of the project.
Written comments concerning the project may be mailed to the Ohio Department of Transportation, District 11, Attention: Thomas Stratton, 2201 Reiser Avenue SE, New Philadelphia, Ohio 44663. ODOT District 11 can also be contacted by telephone at 330-339-6633. All comments must be submitted by February 24, 2011.
