State Route 150 bridge to be replaced at Rayland
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Monday, February 20, 2017) – Work is getting started for an upcoming bridge replacement project on State Route 150 at Rayland in Jefferson County.
The bridge just west of SR 7 will be reduced to one lane with temporary traffic signals on Monday, March 6th. ODOT’s contractor, Shelly & Sands, Inc., from Columbus, Ohio, will begin setting the poles for the traffic signals today. Minimal impacts to traffic are expected until March.
The cost of this project is $1.3 million, and the completion date 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.
