SR 7 on ramp at Shadyside to be closed for resurfacing project
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Monday, July 29, 2013) – The State Route 7 northbound on ramp at the north Central Ave. Interchange will be closed to traffic next Monday, August 5th, as part of the ongoing $3.2 million resurfacing project.
Beginning at the ramps located at the north interchange of SR 7 and Central Ave., traffic will be detoured south on Central Ave. through Shadyside to the south interchange of SR 7 and Central Ave., then north on SR 7. Officials anticipate the ramp reopening in 14 days.
Work began in April to resurface SR 7 from the south end of Shadyside to Bellaire in Belmont County. One lane of traffic is being maintained in each direction on SR 7.
ODOT’s contractor is Lash Paving Inc., from Colerain, Ohio. All work on the project is expected to be completed by this fall.
