Work begins to stabilize Salineville rockslide area

Posted: Updated:
SALINEVILLE, Ohio -

Blasting work is set to begin Monday on the $2 million, State Route 39 rockfall remediation project just east of Salineville in Columbiana County.

The Ohio Department of Transportation says the work will cause some minor traffic delays. ODOT contractor, Ruhlin Company, will begin blasting operations, Monday through Friday, between 2:00 and 5:00 p.m., weather permitting.

Traffic will be stopped at the construction zone daily for approximately 10 minutes while blasting occurs. Motorists should plan ahead to avoid delays during this time frame. Only one blast will occur per day.

Otherwise, two-way traffic is being maintained in one, 11-foot lane with temporary traffic signals.

Ruhlin anticipates three months of blasting work and a fall completion date.
