Dillonvale-Longrun Road to be closed for bridge replacement project
Funded by Ohio’s Bridge Partnership Program
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Wednesday, March 29, 2017) – Work is getting underway this week to replace two bridges on Dillonvale-Longrun Road (County Road 7) just west of Dillonvale in Jefferson County as part of a $1.44 million project made possible by Gov. John R. Kasich’s Ohio Bridge Partnership Program.
ODOT’s contractor, U.S. Bridge, from Cambridge, Ohio, will be cutting trees tomorrow and building their causeway next week.
CR 7 will be closed on April 17, 2017. Traffic will be detoured on CR 7 south to CR 6 south to SR 150 east back to CR 7 north.
The Ohio Bridge Partnership Program, developed by ODOT in late 2013, provides resources to assist counties and cities with the replacement of their bridges. Since the program’s inception, two additional phases have been added, totaling $10 million each. Altogether, about $140 million has been invested throughout the state to replace more than 220 county and city-owned bridges.
All work is expected to be completed by August 31, 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.
