County Road 245 to be closed next week as part of bridge project near Holmesville
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Tuesday, October 16, 2012) – County Road 245 will be closed to traffic next Monday, Oct. 22nd, for roadway realignment work as part of the State Route 83 bridge replacement project over Salt Creek near Holmesville in Holmes County.
The road will be closed for 21 calendar days, and a detour will be posted along Holmes County Road 245 and Wayne County Road 2.
Work began on this project in April. The bridge built in 1928 and located about 2 ½ miles south of the Wayne County line has been replaced with a three-span continuous reinforced concrete slab structure on capped piles.
ODOT’s contractor for this $1.3 million project is V O Menuez & Son Inc., from Millersburg, Ohio. Two-way traffic is still being maintained with temporary traffic signals on SR 83. All work is expected to be completed by May 2013.
