Work to begin on U.S. 250 culvert replacement project east of Cadiz
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Monday, April 04, 2016) – Work is scheduled to begin next Monday, April 11th, to replace a culvert located east of Cadiz about ¾ of a mile west of Georgetown in Harrison County.
The $305,499 project will replace an existing box culvert over an unnamed tributary to the South Fork of Short Creek with a pre-cast, four-sided concrete box culvert. In addition, some approach work along U.S. 250 will be performed, and rock channel protection will be placed at the outlet end of the new culvert to prevent erosion.
Minimal impacts to traffic are expected until April 28th when U.S. 250 will be closed for five days. Starting Thursday, April 28th, traffic will be detoured west on U.S. 250 to SR 9 south to SR 519 east back to U.S. 250 west, and reverse.
