U.S. Route 250 Pavement Repairs to begin in June
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Monday, May 24, 2010) – Pavement repairs are set to begin Monday, June 7th, on U.S. Route 250 east of Tappan Lake in Harrison County.
About two miles of U.S. 250 from just east of the former Coultrap's store to just west of the former Mallernee's Market will be reconstructed to include new concrete pavement, new culverts, new guardrail and signs.
Work is anticipated to begin on the 11 culvert replacements within the project limits in late June or early July. However, the pavement replacement will not begin until Tuesday, September 7th, after Labor Day, when U.S. 250 will be closed to traffic for 45 days.
Traffic will be maintained with flaggers during pavement repair work and the culvert replacements.
ODOT's contractor for this $4.3 million project is Shelly & Sands, Inc., from Zanesville, Ohio, and the completion date is November 30, 2010.
ODOT reminds motorists to SLOW DOWN for the "Cone Zone;" turn on headlights and drive carefully in work zones. Drive responsibly for your safety and the safety of the highway workers. Remember, fines in work zones are doubled for not obeying traffic signs. Minimize distractions – turn OFF cell phones in construction zones. Remember to always buckle up.
