Resurfacing work to begin later this month on Interstate 77 between Guernsey County line and Newcomerstown
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Tuesday, April 2, 2013) – Road construction signs are expected to start going up today on Interstate 77 from the Guernsey County line to just south of Newcomerstown in Tuscarawas County for upcoming resurfacing work.
Officials don’t anticipate lane restrictions until mid-April; however, at that time, one lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction during the week. But, all lanes will remain open to traffic Friday through Sunday.
ODOT’s contractor for this $4.7 million project is Shelly & Sands Inc., from Zanesville, Ohio. All work is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
