The Village of New Concord is working with ODOT and Complete General Construction Co. to install stamped concrete crosswalks at the intersection of US 40 and SR 83. The majority of the crosswalk work is complete, except for the northern crosswalk.
The work on the northern crosswalk (on SR 83 or North Friendship Drive) will begin on Thursday, September 1st and will end, weather permitting, on Friday, September 9th . Due to the lane restrictions necessary for the work, the Village is advising travelers to take alternate routes and plan for additional travel time, especially during morning and afternoon rush hours.
The contractor is working with the Village to ensure smooth passage for school buses during this time. The New Concord Village Police Department will continue to direct traffic traveling through this intersection.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this project. If you have any questions please contact the New Concord Village Hall at 740-826-7671.
