Work to begin on State Route 751 pavement preservation project
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Monday, May 02, 2016) – Work will begin this week on a project to extend the pavement life on over four miles of State Route 751 from the Coshocton County line to Stone Creek in Tuscarawas County.
As a preservation treatment, SR 751 will be chip sealed from the Coshocton County line to Stone Creek. However, traditional paving will take place on SR 751 through the village of Stone Creek.
Utilizing aggressive preservation treatments, such as chip seals, lowers costs over the long term, enabling ODOT to resurface more roads and provide a smoother ride for more people.
Traffic will be maintained with flaggers.
ODOT’s contractor for this $370,000 project is Shelly & Sands Inc., from Columbus, Ohio, and the completion date is mid-October 2016.
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.
