State Route 800 closure north of Barnesville rescheduled
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Wednesday, April 19, 2017) – State Route 800 will NOT be closed next Monday, April 24th, north of Barnesville in Belmont County for a culvert replacement project.
The 14-day closure has been postponed until late May.
This is part of a $1.1 million project that includes five total culverts in Belmont County; however, work has not begun at the other four locations.
ODOT’s contractor is Americon Industrial Services LLC, from Youngstown, Ohio, and the completion date is August 15, 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.
The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable Federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried out by ODOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 11, 2015, and executed by FHWA and ODOT.
