ANOTHER?LARGE load of dirt moves across a steel plate placed to protect the pavement as work continues to repair a landslide and reconstruct a section of U.S. Route 250 approximately three miles east of Cadiz in Harrison County. Construction will include the realignment of about one-half mile of U.S. 250 beginning at Township Road 93 (Dickerson Church Road) extending eastward. Portions of the roadway embankment in this area have repeatedly eroded due to heavy rains, causing sections of the pavement and guardrail to fail. Additionally, the roadway will be reconstructed on a new alignment to eliminate the eroded embankment and prevent future rock slides. It will also remove a dangerous “S” curve and create a single gradual curve in its place. Two-way traffic is maintained in an 11-foot lane with flaggers and temporary traffic signals as Trucco Construction Co. Inc., from Delaware, Ohio removes dirt from the top of the roadway and hauls it cross the road to build the new roadbed. Plans are to close the road to traffic later this summer to allow for completion of this work. The completion date is September 2014 and motorists can check for updates on the ODOT’s District 11 Facebook page.
