U.S. 250 to be closed next week east of Cadiz for slide repair project
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Monday, September 8, 2014) – U.S. Route 250 (Cadiz-Harrisville Road) will be closed to traffic next Monday, September 15th, for seven days as part of the ongoing work to repair a landslide and reconstruct a section of the road approximately three miles east of Cadiz in Harrison County.
Beginning at the intersection of SR 9 and U.S. 250 in Cadiz, traffic will be detoured south on SR 9 to SR 519 east back to U.S. 250, and reverse.
Construction began in May to realign about one-half mile of U.S. 250 from Township Road 93 (Dickerson Church Road) eastward to eliminate eroded embankment and prevent future rock slides. It is also removing a dangerous “S” curve.
Two-way traffic has been maintained in an 11-foot lane with flaggers and temporary traffic signals.
ODOT’s contractor for this $1.6 million project is Trucco Construction Co. Inc., from Delaware, Ohio, and the completion date is early October 2014.
