The proposed project consists of the construction of a 1700-foot access road to the historic Barker House located in Newport Township, Washington County, OH on SR 7 between Sheets Run Road and Ingram Road.

The proposed project will provide safer access to the National Register-listed Judge Joseph Barker Junior House.

The new roadway will be constructed along the south side SR 7, extending from the Corps of Engineers Willow Island Locks and Dam entrance (east) to an existing gravel driveway (west), which leads to the Barker House.
