Pavement preservation project to begin in Carroll and Harrison counties
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Tuesday, June 14, 2016) – Work will begin next Monday, June 20th, on a project to extend the pavement life of over 11 miles of state routes in Carroll and Harrison counties.
As a preservation treatment, SR 39 will be chip sealed in Carroll County from SR 524 to Salineville. In Harrison County, SR 9 will be chip sealed from Jewett to Germano, and SR 519 will be chip sealed from U.S. Route 22 to New Athens.
Utilizing aggressive preservation treatments, such as chip seals, lowers costs over the long term, enabling ODOT to resurface more roads and provide a smoother ride for more people.
Traffic will be maintained with flaggers.
ODOT’s contractor for this $814,000 project is Central-Allied Enterprises Inc., from Canton, Ohio, and the completion date is October 15, 2016.
The Ohio Department of Transportation maintains the state's largest man-made asset – the transportation system. ODOT's mission is to provide the safe and easy movement of people and goods from place to place. As a $2.8 billion per year enterprise, ODOT invests the bulk of its resources in system preservation through maintenance, construction and snow and ice operations.
The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable Federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried out by ODOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 11, 2015, and executed by FHWA and ODOT.
