New Philadelphia, Ohio (Tuesday, May 24, 2016) – State Route 179 will be closed to traffic next Wednesday, June 1st, for a culvert replacement south Lakeville in Holmes County.
ODOT’s maintenance crew will be replacing a culvert just south of SR 226. Work is expected to take two days to complete.
Beginning at the intersection of SR 179 and SR 226, traffic will be detoured east on SR 226 to SR 514 south to SR 39 west back to SR 179, and reverse.
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.
