Utility work may delay traffic along Route 14 in Columbiana

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIANA, Ohio -

People living around Columbiana may spot a helicopter flying above State Route 14 as Ohio Edison crews work on electric transmission lines.

The utility is using the helicopter to inspect power lines on Monday and Tuesday of this week.

The helicopter will be flying low and will be crossing State Route 14.  Each time it crosses, flaggers will stop all traffic until the helicopter is safely across the roadway.

From now through July 13, crews will be working along the road. During the daytime hours, State Route 14 will be reduced to one lane, with safety zones and flaggers controlling traffic as crews work close to the roadway.

Drivers should expect heavy traffic during that time. The project can create significant traffic delays.

The work is needed to update and enhance the electrical grid in the area.
