Traffic restrictions on state Route 11
State Route 11 will be restricted starting Monday for bridge-beam erection as part of the $1.13 million project to replace to the state Route 558 bridge deck above the roadway just east of state Route 164 in Columbiana County’s Fairfield Township, said the Ohio Department of Transportation.
ODOT’s contractor, A.P. O’Horo Co. of Youngstown, will use troopers from the Ohio State Highway Patrol to slow traffic between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. during this operation. Traffic delays may last up to 15 minutes at times.
State Route 558 was closed to traffic June 2 for 80 days. Traffic is being detoured south on state Route 164 to state Route 517 east back to state Route 558, and reverse.
The completion date for the project is September.
Campaign begun for mural artist
A Kickstarter campaign is underway to help a Pittsburgh-based artist return to her hometown of Campbell for two weeks in August to create a 30-foot mural depicting life throughout the decades in the historic Youngstown Sheet & Tube Co. homes.
The Iron Soup Historical Preservation Co., which is working to preserve and revitalize the national historic site, has allowed Katelyn Gould, the artist, to use a wall of one of the buildings at Delmar Avenue and Chambers Street, and also will provide scaffolding.
But the funds to purchase paint and other supplies, and also to support the 26-year-old Gould’s travel and living expenses, still are needed.
The campaign goal is $1,500, and will be funded only if that amount is raised by July 20. To learn more about the project or to donate, visit www.kickstarter.com/projects/.
The next planning meeting for the second African-American Wellness Walk/Run, slated for Aug. 2, will be at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Covelli Centre Community Room, 229 E. Front St.
The walk/run will also begin and end at the center. Health screenings will be conducted at 7 a.m., with the walk/run starting at 9. For information, call 330-746-5600.
Patrols for holiday
Township police will have “high-visibility enforcement patrols” in addition to its regular patrols over the holiday weekend, according to a press release issued by the police department.
Officers will target all violators for aggressive driving, especially including speeding, distracted driving, and operating a vehicle while under the Influence (OVI) of alcohol and/or drug-related violations.
Seat-belt usage will also be an emphasis of the extra enforcement patrols, the release says.
