Work begins to repair State Route 147 slip west of Bellaire
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Thursday, March 17, 2011) – ODOT is beginning repairs to the State Route 147 slip that reduced it to one lane of traffic about 3.5 miles west of Bellaire in Belmont County last Friday.
Ohio-West Virginia Excavating Co., from Powhatan Point, will begin constructing an H-Pile Wall next week. They are on-site today widening the pavement for traffic control. One lane of traffic will be maintained with temporary traffic signals throughout construction.
ODOT estimates these repairs to cost approximately $200,000 and take about six weeks to complete.
