The Ohio Department of Transportation has officially announced its 2014 road construction season.
In Belmont County, officials say a portion of Interstate 470 is expected to be repaved this summer. Officials also say several bridges and culverts are slated to be replaced along Interstate 70 including a bridge replacement project at the State Route 9 interchange in St. Clairsville.
In Jefferson County, a bridge replacement project along State Route 7 through Mingo Junction is nearing completion. Over the past couple of weeks crews have resumed working on replacing two separate bridge decks. Officials say the harsh winter weather has pushed the project way behind schedule.
