SR 524 to be closed during daytime hours for culvert replacements
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Monday, July 18, 2016) – Starting next Monday, July 25th, State Route 524 will be closed during daytime hours for the next few weeks in Carroll County for multiple culvert replacements.
SR 524 will be closed from just north of County Road 21 (Avon Rd.) to the Jefferson Co. line, between 6:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, while ODOT maintenance crews work to replace 18 different culverts in the five-mile stretch of roadway.
Beginning at the intersection of SR 524 and SR 164, traffic will be detoured north on SR 164 to SR 39 west back to SR 524, and reverse.
The Ohio Department of Transportation maintains the state's largest man-made asset – the transportation system.
