Each year, 1812Blockhouse provides regular weekend reports on road project work being conducted under the auspices of the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) in Ashland, Crawford, and Richland Counties.

Such work is, of course, weather dependent, and so those reports take a hiatus during the winter months. With the imminent arrival of April, however, ODOT crews are taking to the streets to make repairs from winter road wear and to being new projects designed to improve local transportation. This past week, ODOT District 3 shared announcements of upcoming work in the three county area.

This is the first of those reports for 2024.


U.S. Route 30 culvert preservation

U.S. 30, from Crawford Wyandot Road to Old Lincoln Highway, will be reduced to one lane in each direction for a culvert maintenance project beginning Monday, April 1. One 12-foot lane of traffic will be maintained with drums and concrete barrier wall. Estimated completion: August 2024

State Route 603 closure

State Route 603, at its intersection with Crider Road, will close Monday, April 1 for three days. This is in coordination with the Crider Road bridge replacement project. The detour route will be SR 603 north to U.S. 30 west to U.S. 42 east, and reverse. Estimated completion: Wednesday, April 3, 2024
