U.S. Route 22 eastbound to be restricted for bridge repairs
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Tuesday, November 04, 2014) – U.S. Route 22 eastbound traffic will be restricted in Jefferson County, beginning Monday, November 10th, for repairs to the County Road 22A bridge located over the highway.
Eastbound traffic will be rerouted Monday through Saturday between 8:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. via the CR 22A ramps. Westbound traffic will not be affected.

The cost of the project is $124,444. Heat straightening is expected to be completed by mid-December, and painting will take place next spring.
