Work gets under way on four-lane resurfacing project at Steubenville
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Monday, May 11, 2015) – Work is getting under way today on a $3.9 million project to resurface the four-lane section of U.S. Route 22/State Route 7 at Steubenville in Jefferson County.
U.S. 22/SR 7 will be resurfaced from University Boulevard to the southern SR 213 intersection. Additionally, work includes concrete joint repairs, full-depth concrete pavement repairs, and barrier wall replacement.
Work this week includes an eastbound shoulder closure on U.S. 22 for saw cutting by the barrier wall, and a temporary lane closure tomorrow between 9 and 10 a.m. on SR 7 northbound to allow for measurements of the barrier wall inlets.
One-lane will be maintained in each direction during construction.
