ODOT UPDATE ON RIVERVIEW AVENUE, STONE ARCH CONSTRUCTION

 

ODOT has announced an update on their stone-arch culvert construction project in Henry County.    The Ohio Department of Transportation reports construction has been halted due to excessive deterioration in the structure, and the need to go a differed direction in the project.

As a result of discussions with the city of Napoleon, Henry county engineer’s office, and Ohio Historic Preservation, East Riverview will be reconstructed to the point where it can carry traffic on a temporary basis.  The roadway is expected to re-open by the end of November; but some short-term closures may still impact traffic until May 2014.

                        In addition, West Riverview will be closed down to one lane through the end of November.   That project is expected to wrap-up in the summer of 2014.
