State Route 152 to be closed south of Smithfield next week for bridge replacement project
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Thursday, July 28, 2011) – State Route 152 will be closed to traffic next Wednesday, August 3rd, south of Smithfield in Jefferson County for a bridge replacement project.
The roadway will be closed for 21 days, while the existing concrete slab bridge is removed and replaced with a precast concrete box culvert. Beginning at the intersection of SR 152 and SR 150, traffic will be detoured east on SR 150 to SR 7 north to SR 151 west back to SR 152, and reverse.
This road closure was coordinated with the local school district to avoid a detour when school resumes in late August.
ODOT's contractor for this $311,757 project is Buds Inc., from Nashport, Ohio, and the overall completion date is October 31, 2011.
