State Route 148 realignment work to begin west of Steinersville
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Wednesday, July 13, 2011) – Realignment work will begin next week on State Route 148 west of Steinersville in Belmont County.
The roadway will be realigned to the north of the existing alignment to eliminate an existing landslide hazard along the northern side of SR 148, a rockfall hazard on the roadway's existing uphill slope, and improve the overall horizontal and vertical alignment of the roadway. Additionally, two new culverts will be added on the western end of the project.
Impacts to traffic will be minimal this year. During final tie-in work expected in 2012, traffic will be reduced to one lane with temporary traffic signals.
ODOT's contractor for this $4 million project is Shelly & Sands Inc., from Zanesville, Ohio, and the completion date is June 30, 2012.
