State Route 150 delays expected tomorrow for bridge project
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Monday, September 09, 2013) – Traffic delays are expected periodically tomorrow, Sept. 10th, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., on State Route 150 in Warren Township, Jefferson County, as part of a $1.4 million bridge replacement project.
Work began in late July to replace the bridge located over Short Creek about three miles west of SR 7 between Dillonvale and Rayland.
Traffic will be stopped intermittently tomorrow while ODOT’s contractor, Shelly & Sands Inc., from Zanesville, Ohio, sets the concrete beams for the bridge. Otherwise, two-way traffic is being maintained in one, 10-foot lane with temporary traffic signals.
This project has an interim completion date, requiring all lanes be open to traffic by mid-December; however, some work will remain on the project through June 2014.
