Work to begin on State Route 9 north of Carrollton
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Tuesday, April 18, 2017) – Work is expected to start Monday, April 24th, that will restrict traffic on State Route 9 north of Carrollton in Carroll County as part of the $1.13 million intersection improvement project that began last fall.
Next week, SR 9 traffic will be maintained in one lane with flaggers for pipe installation prior to the road closing May 1st for 30 days.
Starting Monday, May 1st, SR 9 traffic will be detoured on SR 39 west to SR 43 north to SR 171 east back to SR 9, and reverse.
The project will improve the intersection by horizontally realigning SR 9 (Kensington Rd.) and raising the vertical profile of SR 171 (Waynesburg Rd.).
Tree and stump cutting work was completed last year to allow for required utility relocations.
