New Philadelphia, Ohio (Tuesday, February 2, 2010) – The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) District 11 is proposing improvements to the State Route 800 bridge over Interstate 70 at Hendrysburg in Belmont County.

Construction may begin late fall of this year. The roadway will be closed during construction, and a detour will be provided.
