Intersection work at Martins Ferry may cause traffic delays next week
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Wednesday, August 03, 2016) – Starting next Tuesday, August 9th, final work will be taking place at the Aetna and Hanover Street intersections along State Route 7 in Martins Ferry.
ODOT’s contractor, Shelly & Sands Inc., from Columbus, Ohio, will finish installing traffic signal equipment to activate the new traffic signals constructed as part of the $1.36 million intersection improvement project earlier this year.
Law enforcement officers will help move traffic through the area, but some lane closures will be necessary to remove the old signal equipment. Motorists are urged to plan ahead to avoid delays or use an alternate route.
The work is expected to be completed by August 19th.
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.
