U.S 22 to be restricted next week at Cadiz for bridge removal
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Tuesday, July 26, 2016) – U.S. Route 22 will be restricted at Cadiz next Tuesday night, August 2nd, at 7 p.m. for the removal of the Township Road 243 bridge over the highway in Harrison County.
ODOT’s contractor, the Beaver Excavating Company, from Canton, Ohio, plans to utilize law enforcement officers to help with the traffic stops needed for the beam removal. Officials expect four different rolling road blocks with 15 minute traffic delays each time.
All the bridge’s beams should be removed and traffic restored by 7 a.m. Wednesday morning, August 3rd.
Work began late last November on the $1.5 million project to remove the bridge located between the intersections of U.S. 22/SR 9 and U.S. 22/U.S. 250 and relocate TR 243 to intersect with Dennison Avenue north of U.S. 22 and include a cul-de-sac south of U.S. 22.
The completion date for the entire project is mid-October 2016.
The Ohio Department of Transportation maintains the state's largest man-made asset – the transportation system. ODOT's mission is to provide the safe and easy movement of people and goods from place to place. As a $2.8 billion per year enterprise, ODOT invests the bulk of its resources in system preservation through maintenance, construction and snow and ice operations.
The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable Federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried out by ODOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 11, 2015, and executed by FHWA and ODOT.
