New Philadelphia, Ohio (Monday, March 20, 2017) – A slide repair project is expected to get started this week on State Route 147 just west of Bellaire in Belmont County.
Starting next Monday, March 27th, SR 147 will be reduced to one, 11-foot lane with temporary traffic signals to maintain two-way traffic.

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.
