State Route 60 road closure postponed south of Welcome

New Philadelphia, Ohio (Thursday, May 29, 2014)State Route 60 will NOT be closed to traffic on Monday, June 2nd, south of Welcome in Holmes County for a culvert replacement.
This seven-day road closure will be rescheduled later next month due to changes in the contractor’s schedule and material deliveries.
However, work will take place next week on SR 83 south of Millersburg to replace a culvert as part of this $486,000 districtwide culvert replacement project. Traffic will be maintained at this site when needed with flaggers.
This project also includes three other locations in Holmes County, one in Belmont County, and one in Columbiana County. ODOT’s contractor is Shelly & Sands Inc., from Columbus, Ohio, and the completion date for the entire project is October 2014.
