State Route 9 to be closed in Harrison County for bridge replacement
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Wednesday, July 7, 2010) – State Route 9 will be closed to traffic Monday, July 19th, north of Cadiz in Harrison County for a bridge replacement project.
The roadway will be closed to traffic about four miles north of U.S. Route 22 for 28 days. Beginning at SR 9 and the U.S. 22 ramp in Cadiz, traffic will be detoured east on U.S. 22 to SR 151 west back to SR 9, and reverse.
The existing concrete slab bridge over an unnamed tributary to Clear Fork will be replaced with a prefabricated concrete box culvert. Additionally, the guardrail will be replaced, new headwalls and wingwalls will be constructed, and minimal pavement work will occur.
ODOT's contractor for this $240,257 project is BOG Construction Inc., from Berlin Center, Ohio, and the overall completion date is mid-November.
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.
