Work to begin on U.S. Route 250 slide repair project east of Cadiz
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Wednesday, May 14, 2014) – Work will begin next Monday, May 19th, to repair a landslide and reconstruct a section of U.S. Route 250 (Cadiz-Harrisville Road) approximately three miles east of Cadiz in Harrison County.
Construction will include the realignment of about one-half mile of U.S. 250 beginning at Township Road 93 (Dickerson Church Road) extending eastward. Portions of the roadway embankment in this area have repeatedly eroded due to heavy rains, causing sections of the pavement and guardrail to fail. Additionally, the roadway will be reconstructed on a new alignment to eliminate the eroded embankment and prevent future rock slides. It will also remove a dangerous “S” curve and create a single gradual curve in its place.
Two-way traffic will be maintained in an 11-foot lane with flaggers and temporary traffic signals; however, the roadway may be closed to traffic later this summer to allow for some of this work.
ODOT’s contractor for this $1.6 million project is Trucco Construction Co. Inc., from Delaware, Ohio, and the completion date is September 2014.
