State Route 800 to be closed next week for bridge replacement
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Monday, September 23, 2013) – Work is getting underway today on a State Route 800 bridge replacement project about a mile north of Interstate 70 near Hendrysburg in Belmont County. This work was previously planned for September but was delayed due to the contractor’s schedule.
This week, two-way traffic is being maintained with traffic signals. However, next Wednesday, October 2nd, SR 800 will be closed to traffic for 14 days.
Beginning at the intersection of SR 800 and U.S. 22, traffic will be detoured west on U.S. 22 to SR 513 in Guernsey County, then south on SR 513 to I-70 east back to SR 800, and reverse.
