Bridge replacement project to begin near Holmesville
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Thursday, April 19, 2012) – Work is set to begin soon on a State Route 83 bridge replacement project over Salt Creek near Holmesville in Holmes County.
The bridge built in 1928 and located about 2 ½ miles south of the Wayne County line will be replaced with a three-span continuous reinforced concrete slab structure on capped piles.
ODOT’s contractor, V O Menuez & Son Inc., from Millersburg, Ohio, currently plans to restrict traffic on Monday, April 30, 2012. Two-way traffic will be maintained with temporary traffic signals.
Later this summer, County Road 245 will be closed for 45 days for roadway realignment work.
The total cost of this project is $1.3 million. Work is expected to be completed within a year.
