Work to begin on State Route 524 pavement preservation project
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Monday, May 08, 2017) – Work will begin next Monday, May 15th, to extend the pavement life on over five miles of State Route 524 in Carroll County.
As a preservation treatment, SR 524 will be chip sealed from SR 39 at Mechanicstown to the Jefferson County line.
Chip seal will also be applied on nearly three miles of SR 524 in Jefferson County from the Carroll County line to Bergholz, and on over four miles of SR 646 in Jefferson County from the Harrison County line to SR 152.
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 $530,000 project is the Shelly Company, from Thornville, Ohio, and the completion date is September 30, 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.
