New Philadelphia, Ohio (Wednesday, February 08, 2017) – State Route 7 will be reduced to one lane in each direction this Friday, February 10th, north of Martins Ferry in Belmont County for lighting work.
Temporary lighting is being installed for an upcoming bridge repair project to take place at County Road 4.
ODOT’s contractor, A P O’Horo Company, from Youngstown, expects to begin work on the $1.5 million bridge project in mid-March. The completion date for the project is September 30, 2017.
The Ohio Department of Transportation maintains the state's largest man-made asset – the transportation system. ODOT's mission is to provide the safe and easy movement of people and goods from place to place. As a $2.8 billion per year enterprise, ODOT invests the bulk of its resources in system preservation through maintenance, construction and snow and ice operations.
The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable Federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried out by ODOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 11, 2015, and executed by FHWA and ODOT.
