New Philadelphia, Ohio (Monday, May 18, 2015) – Work is expected to begin next week on a $1.7 million project in the city of St. Clairsville that includes resurfacing and storm sewer upgrades.
Over two miles of U.S. Route 40 (Main Street) and about 1.5 miles of State Route 9 (Marietta Street) will be resurfaced through the corporation.
Additionally, the storm sewer will be upgraded along East Main Street in the vicinity of Convenient Food Mart.
ODOT’s contractor, Shelly & Sands Inc., from Rayland, Ohio, plans to begin work on the storm sewer next Tuesday, May 26th. However, paving is not expected to begin until late June.
Traffic will be maintained with flaggers.
The completion date for this project is July 31, 2015.
