U.S. Route 40 paving to begin next week
Traffic delays expected
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Wednesday, May 04, 2016) – Weather permitting, paving is expected to begin next Wednesday, May 11th, on U.S. Route 40 between Brookside and Blaine in Belmont County.
Work began last year on this $3.38 million project that also included new sidewalks and curbs along the four mile stretch of roadway.
Traffic will be maintained with flaggers, but motorists should plan ahead to avoid delays.
All work is expected to be completed this month.
ODOT’s contractor is Shelly & Sands Inc., from Columbus, Ohio.
