State Route 7 ramp closures expected this weekend
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Wednesday, May 18, 2016) – As part of the $1.33 million, resurfacing project on State Route 7 in Belmont County, intermittent ramp closures are expected this weekend.
The project – just over three miles long from about one mile south of Martins Ferry’s north corp. line to the Jefferson County line – will have intermittent ramp closures this Saturday and Sunday, May 21st and 22nd, at the Pattons Run/Picoma Rd. Exit (both north and southbound) and the Public Rd./Yorkville Exit.
Each closure is expected to last about three hours.
ODOT’s contractor is Strawser Construction Inc., from Columbus, Ohio, and the completion date is August 31, 2016.
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.
