Westbound US 250 Exit Ramp at SR 39 to be closed next Wednesday
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Thursday, October 13, 2016) – The westbound U.S. Route 250 exit ramp bridge to State Route 39 at New Philadelphia in Tuscarawas County will be closed for one day next week to perform repairs associated with the ongoing $1.2 million bridge replacement project.
The U.S. 250 westbound exit ramp, located just before the Interstate 77 merger, will be closed between 7 AM and 7 PM next Wednesday, October 19th.
ODOT’s contractor, Ohio-West Virginia Excavating Co., from Shadyside, Ohio, will be making needed pavement repairs.
The bridge was closed earlier this summer while the structure was replaced. The project’s overall completion date is October 31, 2016.
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.
