Route 39 work

Work is underway to move 125,000 cubic yards of soil and rock from the hillside towering over state Route 39 just east of Salineville. According to Ohio Department of Transportation project engineer Michael Bair, 8-15 people will be working the project that has a target finish date of mid-November. The Ruhlin Co. of Sharon Center is doing the work under the supervision of ODOT. Minor traffic flow interruptions will be experienced by drivers on state Route 39 during the project.
