New Philadelphia, Ohio (Wednesday, June 16, 2010) – State Route 7 southbound will be restricted for bridge deck repair work through Jefferson County, beginning Monday, June 21st, 2010.
ODOT's maintenance crews will be patching bridge decks on SR 7 for about two weeks, starting at the Columbiana County line and working southward to the Belmont County line then returning in the northbound lanes.
Motorists should plan for daily lane closures. However, one lane of traffic will always be maintained. No overnight lane closures are expected.
Work should be completed by July 2nd.
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.
