The Zanesville-Muskingum County Port Authority (ZMCPA) has officially broken ground on the first major project at the National Road Business Park. The Park is located just off of I-70, Exit 160 on U.S. 40 in Muskingum County.

Shelly & Sands, Inc. is working as the general contractor on this $3M project. The project involves construction of 3,300LF of new roadway, a new lift station and force main, over 2,600LF of gravity sanitary sewer, and over 2,900LF of 12” water main. The new roadway will become the primary access road into the National Road Business Park, creating a safe and accessible road and interchange for the newly established park. It will intersect with U.S. 40 (East Pike).

Construction of the access road and infrastructure upgrades at the National Road Business Park will create enhanced marketing opportunities for the ZMCPA, and allow us to better meet the needs and specifications that are regularly being requested by site selectors. We see this development as not only a boost for Muskingum County, but for the entire Southeastern Ohio Region.

The development of the National Road Business Park has been a truly unique, inter-governmental effort, as the funding for purchase and development is being shared jointly between the ZMCPA, Muskingum County and the City of Zanesville. We have also been fortunate to have outstanding support from our regional and state partners – JobsOhio, OhioSE, ODOT, and Ohio Dept. of Jobs & Commerce.
