State Route 7 lane restrictions between Brilliant and Rush Run to be extended next week for Riddles Run Bridge work
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Thursday, March 23, 2017) – The State Route 7 work zones – just north of Brilliant and near Rush Run – for slope repairs in Jefferson County will be extended together next week for work on a bridge located in the middle of the two zones.
These additional traffic restrictions on SR 7 are required to allow ODOT’s contractor, A P O’Horo Company, from Youngstown, Ohio, for the $1.8 million Riddles Run Bridge project located over SR 7, the ability to safely install their required under-decking.
One lane of traffic will continue to be maintained in each direction. This condition is expected to last through the end of the week.
Riddles Run (Township Rd. 163) is reduced to one, 11-foot lane with temporary traffic signals.
The completion date for the bridge 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.
