Start for State Route 7 resurfacing work in Steubenville delayed
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Wednesday, June 13, 2012) – Work will not begin next Monday, June 18th, as originally planned to resurface almost three miles of State Route 7 through the city of Steubenville in Jefferson County.
Due to scheduling conflicts, this start date has been pushed back two to three more weeks until early July.
One, 11-foot lane for traffic will be maintained in each direction.
ODOT’s contractor for this $3 million project is Shelly & Sands Inc., from Zanesville, Ohio.
All work should be completed by June 2013; however, all traffic restrictions are expected to be removed by the end of this year.
