The Ohio Dept. of Transportation is working with the village of Barnesville to widen the intersection of State Routes 147 and 800.

Truck traffic, especially from the oil and gas industries, are having difficulties making the turn at that intersection.

Before the intersection can be widened, ODOT is seeking comments from the public about potential social, environmental, or economic issues with the project, which would get underway in spring 2021.

Written comments may be submitted to:

Attn: Thomas Stratton, ODOT District 11

2201 Reiser Ave. SE, New Philadelphia, Ohio 44663

or via email at: [email protected]

All comments must be submitted by June 13.
