Work to begin next week at Strasburg Interchange
$1.13 million safety project to improve traffic flow
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Monday, July 13, 2015) – Work is set to begin next Monday, July 20th, on the $1.13 million safety improvement project to better the flow of traffic through the Strasburg Interchange area on U.S. Route 250 in Tuscarawas County.
Improvements to U.S. 250 and its interchanges with Interstate 77 include: the installation of new traffic signals, upgrading pavement markings and signage, installing new curb at U.S. 250 and Fort Laurens Road, and extending and constructing turn lanes at multiple U.S. 250 intersections to provide adequate vehicle storage.
Two lanes of traffic – one in each direction – will be maintained on U.S. 250 during construction.
ODOT’s contractor for this project is Shelly & Sands Inc., from Columbus, Ohio, and the completion date is mid-November 2015.
