Work to begin on County Road 10 bridge replacement project in Adena
Funded by Ohio’s Bridge Partnership Program
JEFFERSON COUNTY – Smithfield-Adena Road (County Road 10) was closed to traffic on November 1st after a recent bridge inspection. Working with state and local officials and the contractor for the project, ODOT is expediting the replacement of this structure made possible by Gov. John R. Kasich’s Ohio Bridge Partnership Program.
ODOT’s contractor, Ohio Bridge Corporation, from Cambridge, Ohio, is beginning work today and will work as quickly as possible to reopen the structure. However due to the time of year and weather conditions, officials are hoping to reopen the road by mid-April 2018.
Traffic will be detoured north on CR 10 to SR 152 south in Smithfield to SR 150 west in Dillonvale to Mt. Pleasant, then follow the current CR 7 (Shortcreek Road) detour north on CR 6 (Mt. Pleasant-Adena Road) to Adena, and reverse.
The Ohio Bridge Partnership Program, developed by ODOT in late 2013, provides resources to assist counties and cities with the replacement of their bridges. Since the program’s inception, two additional phases have been added, totaling $10 million each. Altogether, about $140 million has been invested throughout the state to replace more than 220 county and city-owned bridges.
The total cost of this project is $995,600, and the completion date is mid-October 2018.
