ODOT opens new maintenance facility in Columbiana County
NEW PHILADELPHIA, OHIO (Tuesday, June 2, 2015) – Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) Director Jerry Wray, ODOT District 11 Deputy Director Lloyd MacAdam and ODOT’s Columbiana County staff ceremoniously launched balloons today to celebrate the grand opening of their new, $10 million maintenance facility.
This investment in eastern Ohio’s transportation system will improve customer service and the overall efficiency of ODOT’s operations.
“This is an investment in Columbiana County and in our people at ODOT who do great things for Ohio’s communities,” Wray said. “It’s the ODOT worker who opens the road after a rockslide, fills the pothole, and plows the snow which makes our travels much easier. This new facility will help them accomplish all of those tasks.”
The new facility replaced an outdated, 45-year old structure and was constructed on ODOT’s existing property along U.S. Route 30 outside of Lisbon. Construction included:
Added material storage, including a 2,000 ton salt structure built next to the existing 4,000 ton structure
An equipment storage building
A truck storage building with 25 stalls
A mechanical service area
A two truck wash bay
A material lay down area
A fuel station
And, a main garage building with offices
ODOT’s prime contractor was Regency Construction Services, from Lakewood, Ohio.
