New Philadelphia – State Route 800 will NOT be closed next week north of Barnesville in Belmont County for a culvert replacement project.

To avoid closing the road, this 60-inch pipe will be replaced using the jack and bore method. Due to the plan change, work at this site will be delayed; however, it is part of a $1.1 million project that includes four other culverts in Belmont County, including one on SR 149 at Warnock.

Work will begin on SR 149, closing the road at the intersection of SR 9 on June 12th, for 30 days. SR 149 traffic will be detoured on SR 147.

ODOT’s contractor is Americon Industrial Services LLC, from Youngstown, Ohio, and the completion date is August 15, 2017.
