BELMONT COUNTY – Starting Monday, March 12, State Route 148 will be restricted for two weeks, approximately two miles east of State Route 9 and Armstrongs Mills, while ODOT’s contractor removes trees along the hillside of the slope that failed last month.

A mud slide and slope failure within the work zone closed the roadway last month.

Traffic will be maintained with flaggers.

ODOT’s contractor for this project is Alan Stone Co. Inc., from Cutler, Ohio, and the completion date is June 30, 2018.
