Road Construction Projects Abound in the Ohio Valley
Road Construction Projects Abound in the Ohio Valley.
Repair work may begin next week on the U.S. 22 Veterans Memorial Bridge between Steubenville and Weirton after the deck and an expansion joint were damaged by a piece of equipment that fell off a truck late Wednesday evening.
The equipment first hit an expansion joint on the bridge and then damaged the concrete bridge deck.
One lane of Ohio 7 was closed because of concerns about debris falling from the bridge.
The bridge will be limited to one lane eastbound until the repair work is completed, Khalifa said.
∫ In Ohio County, drivers can expect various lane closures in both directions of Interstate70 between the Dallas Pike exit and the Pennsylvania state line as a result of a paving project.
This project is expected to be completed by April 21.
One lane of traffic in each direction will be maintained at all times.
The alternate route for southbound traffic is the U.S. 250 Extension to Jefferson Avenue, Seventh Street and W.Va. 2.
Traffic will be maintained during non-working hours with traffic lights.
