Starting Monday, March 27, state Route 754 will be closed during daytime hours around Paint Valley in Holmes County for tree trimming work.
Between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, SR 754 will be closed from state Route 39 to Township Road 506 for tree trimming and vegetation management work performed by Ohio Department of Transportation maintenance forces.
Beginning at the intersection of SR 39, SR 754 traffic will be detoured west on SR 39 to SR 514 in Nashville, then north on SR 514 back to SR 754, and reverse.
ODOT's Holmes County crew will be using a "SkyTrim" unit for canopy removal and right of way clearing and maintenance. Work at this location is expected to be completed by Friday, March 31. Motorists should plan ahead to avoid delays.
ODOT District 11 Deputy Director Lloyd MacAdam said, "Clearing overhead canopy from our roads improves our pavement longevity and increases motorist safety in the winter."
