New Philadelphia, Ohio (Monday, November 5, 2012) – The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) District 11 is proposing slope improvements to State Route 150 east of Dillonvale in Jefferson County.
The project will repair a slope failure just east of Township Road 114 (Jug Run Road) by installing a 700-foot long retaining wall along the road’s eastbound lane. Also included in the project are the replacement of two culverts and roadway resurfacing.
Construction is anticipated to begin in the fall of 2014. Two-way traffic will be maintained during construction by utilizing part-width construction techniques. Minor new right of way will be required to complete the project.
