Highway signage to get upgrade
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Monday, April 06, 2015) – Work is set to begin next Monday, April 13th, to upgrade the signage along area highways.

Traffic will be maintained. Most of this work will occur on the shoulders; however, some lane closures are possible when overhead signs are installed.
ODOT’s contractor for this $643,499 project is M P Dory Co., from Columbus, Ohio, and the completion date is August 31, 2015.
