SR 60 road closure rescheduled for next week south of Welcome

New Philadelphia, Ohio (Monday, June 16, 2014)The State Route 60 road closure for a culvert replacement south of Welcome in Holmes County has been rescheduled for Monday, June 23rd.
This seven-day road closure was originally planned for earlier this month but was delayed due to changes in the contractor’s schedule and material deliveries.
Beginning at the intersection of SR 39 and SR 60, traffic will be detoured west on SR 39 to U.S. 62/SR 83 south to U.S. 62 west back to SR 60, and reverse.
This work is part of a $486,000 districtwide culvert replacement project, including three other locations in Holmes County, one in Belmont County, and one in Columbiana County. ODOT’s contractor is Shelly & Sands Inc., from Columbus, Ohio, and the completion date for the entire project is October 2014.
