State Route 212 to be reduced to one lane with traffic signals at Zoar on Monday
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Thursday, June 10, 2010) – State Route 212 will be reduced to one-lane with temporary traffic signals at Zoar on Monday, June 14th, 2010.
Two-way traffic will be maintained with temporary traffic signals to allow for the repair of a landslide along the Tuscarawas River from Michael Lane (Twp. Rd. 123) to just east of the Norfolk & Western railroad bridge.
ODOT's contractor, Shelly & Sands, Inc., from Zanesville, Ohio, will be setting concrete barrier wall next week to provide for traffic control.
The roadway will remain reduced to one lane with traffic signals for the duration of the work which has a mid-November completion date. The total cost of the project is $2 million.
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.
