State Route 60 road closure rescheduled south of Killbuck

New Philadelphia, Ohio (Monday, July 28, 2014)The State Route 60 road closure south of Killbuck in Holmes County has been rescheduled until fall due to conflicting detours with another project located further south in Coshocton County.
The road closed briefly last week for a landslide repair project. It will be rescheduled upon completion of the bridge replacement in Metham between County Road 24 and County Road 49.
ODOT’s contractor for this $169,152 project is Shelly & Sands Inc., from Columbus, Ohio. The completion date will still be this calendar year.
