State Route 39 rockfall project resumes east of Salineville
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Monday, April 06, 2015) – Construction resumed today to finish the $2 million, State Route 39 rockfall remediation project that began last year just east of Salineville in Columbiana County.
Two-way traffic will be maintained in one, 11-foot lane with temporary traffic signals.
Remaining work includes: installation of a culvert crossing, barrier wall, new pavement, guardrail, and general cleanup.
Beginning next Monday and Tuesday, April 13th and 14th, ODOT’s contractor, Ruhlin Company, from Sharon Center, Ohio, will be installing the cross culvert, so one lane of traffic will be maintained with flaggers. Motorists should plan ahead to avoid delays during this timeframe.
Officials estimate that all work will be completed by mid-May.
