The Ohio Department of Transportation last week announced a major project affecting traffic on SR 39 east of Salineville.

Work was scheduled to begin June 10 on SR 39 east of Salineville from State Route (SR) 164 to Clarks Mills Road/Steubenville Pike Rd. The closure is the first of three sections from Salineville to Highlandtown scheduled to be closed as part of the project.

Each section will close for 60 days, equal to a total closure period of 180 days.

This project is a major rehabilitation of 4.5 miles of SR 39, stretching from Salineville to Steubenville Pike Road in Highlandtown. The existing concrete base pavement will undergo a process called rubblization, where a specialized machine will crush the concrete and rebuild the base for new asphalt. Once the rubblization is complete, a new asphalt layer will be placed on this stretch of State Route 39.

Closure Section #1: SR 164 to Steubenville Pike Road (CR 413)/ Clarks Mill Road (TR 773)

  • DETOUR (From Salineville):  SR 164 north to SR 518 east, SR 518 east to SR 45 south, SR 45 south to SR 7 south, back to SR 39 west, and reverse.
  • Closure Section #2: From East End Rd. in Salineville to SR 164
    • DETOUR (From Salineville): SR 644 north to 518 east, SR 518 east to SR 164 south, SR 164 south back to SR 39, and reverse. 
  • *Closure Section #3 (Summer 2025):  Steubenville Pike Road (CR 413)/ Clarks Mill Road (TR 773) to Hammondsville (Steubenville Pike Road/TR 776)
