Work resumes on State Route 39 rockfall project east of Salineville
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Tuesday, May 20, 2014) – Work is resuming next Tuesday, May 27th, on the State Route 39 rockfall remediation project just east of Salineville in Columbiana County.
Two-way traffic will be maintained in one, 11-foot lane with temporary traffic signals.
Rockfall occurred at this site in 2012, but officials had to acquire right of way from adjacent property owners to complete the needed excavation project.
ODOT’s contractor for this project estimated to cost $2 million is Ruhlin Company, from Sharon Center, Ohio. Officials anticipate a fall completion date.
