U.S. Route 250 Eastbound Bridge to be Restricted at New Philadelphia Interchange
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Tuesday, July 02, 2013) – Beginning next Monday, July 8th, the U.S. Route 250 eastbound bridge from Interstate 77 southbound will be restricted for repairs to the parapet wall as part of the active $8 million resurfacing project between New Philadelphia and Strasburg in Tuscarawas County.
Traffic will be maintained on the bridge in one, 12-foot lane with portable concrete barrier.
There’s also ongoing nightly lane restrictions on I-77 for paving work from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. Daytime lane restrictions may occur for work north of Dover.
ODOT’s contractor for this project is the Shelly Company, from Thornville, Ohio. All work will be completed by the end of this year.
