Work to begin next week on State Route 39 east of Sugarcreek
$3 million to be invested
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Wednesday, April 13, 2016) – Work is set to begin next Monday, April 18th, to resurface over four miles of State Route 39 east of Sugarcreek.
The realigned, concrete section completed in the early 90s from NewPointe Community Church to old SR 39 will receive its first major upgrade in about 23 years.
Two-way traffic will be maintained in one lane with temporary signals at various locations throughout the work zone for joint repairs prior to resurfacing.
To minimize traffic delays during resurfacing, all paving work will be performed at night between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m., and traffic will be maintained with flaggers.
ODOT’s contractor for this $3 million project is Shelly & Sands, Inc., from Columbus, Ohio, and the completion date is September 30, 2016.
