CARROLLTON – Work is expected to start April 24 that will restrict traffic on State Route 9 (SR 9) north of Carrollton as part of the $1.13 million intersection improvement project that began last fall.
Next week, SR 9 traffic will be maintained in one lane with flaggers for pipe installation prior to the road closing May 1 for 30 days.
Starting May 1, SR 9 traffic will be detoured on SR 39 west to SR 43 north to SR 171 east back to SR 9, and reverse.
The project will improve the intersection by horizontally realigning SR 9 (Kensington Rd.) and raising the vertical profile of SR 171 (Waynesburg Rd.).
Tree and stump cutting work was completed last year to allow for required utility relocations.
ODOT’s contractor is Central-Allied Enterprises Inc., from Canton. The completion date is Sept. 30, 2017.

CARROLLTON – Carrollton Schools board of education members are making plans for a ground breaking ceremony to celebrate the beginning of construction for the new school building.
The event is set to take place May 18. State dignitaries have been invited along with local officials and business leaders.
Superintendent Dave Quattrochi said there will be a canned food drive for students to participate in to benefit the Akron Canton food bank. For every five cans of food brought in by each student, they will receive a ticket to be placed in a drawing in which 20 students, two from each grade, will be chosen to participate in the ground breaking ceremony.
The new facility will be located at the school property on SR 332, just south of the village of Carrollton, and will house grades 6 to 12.
Additional information will be released as plans are completed.
