Nelsonville Lake Hope Dr/ SR278 bridge over Hocking River restricted to one lane until mid-July 2020, use alternate route

The City of Nelsonville announces that the bridge on Lake Hope Drive/ State Route 278 over the Hocking River has been restricted to a single traffic lane. A single 11-foot lane will be maintained with traffic lights on both ends of the bridge. This is an ODOT project that consists of overlaying the bridge surface with a latex modified concrete using scarification. ODOT estimates the project will be completed by mid-July 2020.

Please remember that even temporary traffic lights are to be treated the same as all other traffic control devices. Please use an alternate route when possible and be patient when travelling though the designated work zone.
