State Route 7 bridge repair project to begin next week at Costonia
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Monday, May 18, 2015) – Work will begin next week to repair the State Route 7 bridge at Costonia in Jefferson County.
One lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction on SR 7; however, ramps at the Costonia Exit (County Road 56) will be partially closed during construction.
The northbound on-ramp will be closed in early June for about 75 days; then the southbound off-ramp will be closed for the same duration, tentatively scheduled for mid-August.
Ramp traffic will be detoured on CR 56 to SR 213 to CR 46.
ODOT’s contractor for this $4.6 million project is Shelly & Sands Inc., from Columbus, Ohio, and the completion date is October 31, 2015.
