Business owner: 'It will be more difficult to survive'

A lengthy bridge replacement project on US 250 in Fitchville could prove to be a challenge for the Fitchville Market owners.

The Ohio Department of Transportation closed the roadway today for an estimated 210 days to complete the project and the detour could potentially take a lot of the market's business with it.

Gursharan Singh and his wife, Kiranjit Kaur, have owned the Fitchville Market, 1596 US 250 South, for three years.

"It will affect a lot of our business," Singh said. "We hardly survive in the winter and then with this, it will be more difficult to survive."
