Motorists again have access to the state Route 21 bridge crossing the Tuscarawas River on this village’s south side.
To accommodate a $4 million paving and bridge-replacement project, the Ohio Department of Transportation closed the state Route 21 bridge in April. ODOT recently reopened the bridge.
Mosser Construction of Fremont is the prime contractor in the project.
The project “includes a replacement of the bridge and repaving from the Tuscarawas County line to U.S. Route 30,” said Brent Kovacs, an ODOT public relations officer.
Route 21 is a two-lane, north-south highway. About 18,840 motorists travel on the highway daily, according to ODOT traffic counts.
The bridge replacement involves installing a new deck, piers and substructure.
“The entire bridge has been closed since April 1,” Kovacs said.
