New Philadelphia, Ohio (Monday, April 10, 2017) – Work is expected to begin next Monday, April 17th, on a project to resurface nearly five miles of Interstate 77 in Tuscarawas County.
I-77 will be resurfaced between Stone Creek and Newcomerstown. Work will begin just south of the Stone Creek ramps and end at the bridge over Wolf Rd. – about two miles north of U.S. Route 36.
One lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction.
ODOT’s contractor for this $1.8 million project is Shelly & Sands Inc., from Columbus, Ohio, and the completion date is October 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.
