Resurfacing schedule changes in New Philadelphia
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Wednesday, October 16, 2013) – Beginning tomorrow night, October 17th, paving work will begin at 6 p.m. in the city of New Philadelphia, Tuscarawas County instead of 9 p.m. due to a minimum temperature requirement.
Work resumed last week on the $1.3 million resurfacing project which includes sections of State Routes 39 and 800 (4th Street) as well as Graff Rd. SE at New Towne Mall.
Paving on SR 800 (4th Street) and Graff Rd. at New Towne Mall has been completed with the exception of traffic control markings.
Additionally, two crews will be working this Saturday, October 19th, during daytime hours. One will begin at the corp. limit near Beaver Ave. and the other on West High Ave. from Tuscarawas Ave. and work toward each other near the courthouse.
“No Parking Signs” between 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 a.m. are still installed in these areas.
Traffic will be maintained with flaggers.
Work continues on the 190 curb ramps through the project during daytime hours.
ODOT’s contractor is the Shelly Company, from Twinsburg, Ohio, and the completion date is mid-November.
