DOVER, OH (WOIO) - -
State Route 516 will remain closed between Bair Rd. and Josephine St. at Dover until at least late next spring due to last week's sand and gravel pit collapse adjacent to the roadway at Dover in Tuscarawas County.
Last week, the Dover Fire Department responded to a report that the ground had shifted at Newton Asphalt Plant, 2411 State Route 516, causing a large sink hole.
Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) District 11 Deputy Director Lloyd MacAdam said, "The conditions of the active Industrial Minerals Permit issued to the property owner by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), require the permittee to reclaim and restore the property to its previous conditions which includes stabilizing the pit along SR 516."
Officials anticipate the pit restoration work to take a minimum of three months of good weather due to the nature of the work which must take place from a barge operation. Restoration involves pumping sand back into the voided area, creating a protective fill.
MacAdam said, "Once the property owner's work is completed, we can begin to repair the roadway. Unfortunately, we cannot begin the road repairs until the ground surrounding the road's right of way is stabilized."
Engineers anticipate a late spring or early summer road reopening.
Traffic will continue to be detoured on SR 39 and SR 93. Beginning at the intersection of SR 39 and SR 516 in Dover, traffic is being rerouted west on SR 39 to SR 93 in Sugarcreek, then north on SR 93 back to SR 516 in Dundee, and reverse.
