State Route 800 will NOT close north
of Barnesville next week
Philadelphia, Ohio (Wednesday, May 24, 2017)
– State Route 800 will NOT be closed next
week north of Barnesville in Belmont County for a culvert replacement project.
To avoid closing the road, this 60-inch
pipe will be replaced using the jack and bore method. Due to the plan change,
work at this site will be delayed; however, it is part of a $1.1 million
project that includes four other culverts in Belmont County, including one on
SR 149 at Warnock.
Work will begin on SR 149, closing
the road at the intersection of SR 9 on June 12th, for 30 days. SR
149 traffic will be detoured on SR 147.
ODOT’s contractor is Americon
Industrial Services LLC, from Youngstown, Ohio, and the completion date is
August 15, 2017.
The Ohio Department of Transportation maintains the state's
largest man-made asset – the transportation system. ODOT's mission is to
