Getting their fill

Salem Township Road Supervisor Jason Entrikin is at the controls of the township’s excavator while he and assistant Erik Saksa fill in a ditch in the 35000 block of Salem-Grange Road on Tuesday. Entrikin said 140 feet of drainage pipe was laid and the ditch was filled in with road grindings from Egypt Road and broken up chunks of concrete scrap from the Interstate 11 overpass replacement project for the base. The Ohio Department of Transportation recently replaced the I-11 overpass which state Route 344 crosses between Leetonia and Columbiana. (Salem News photo by Larry Shields)
