Nick McWilliams reporting – Following the long holiday weekend, a substantial project will start on Wednesday evening.

The project from the Ohio Department of Transportation will start on the work, which is planned to last roughly 100 days.

During this period, the stretch will be closed between the U.S. 250, State Route 800 interchange in Tuscarawas County to the U.S. 250 and State Route 151 intersection in Harrison County.

The work area spans four and a half miles, and the project consists of taking the road surface back down to its dirt base and rebuilding from the ground up.

During work, one-lane traffic will be open to emergency personnel, residents in the area, property owners, and business owners.

The official detour takes motorists to U.S. 22 to bypass the construction.

The estimated completion date is October 31st on the $10.2 million endeavor.
