Resurface project begins Monday on S.R. 7 in Jennings, Bartholomew Counties

More detours and delays

Milestone Contractors will begin a $4.1 million asphalt resurface project on a 14-mile section of S.R. 7 in Jennings and Bartholomew Counties on or after Monday, August 5, weather permitting. 

Work will take place from the north junction of S.R. 3/U.S. 50 Bypass in Jennings County to U.S. 31 in Bartholomew County. 

Crews will begin with nighttime patching operations, followed by milling and paving. All work is scheduled to take place between the hours of 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. to avoid major traffic disruptions during daytime hours. The majority of work will take place on week nights and early mornings, with the possibility of weekend work at times.

Motorists should expect nighttime lane closures along the route and exercise caution in and around the work zone. Flaggers will be present to maintain traffic. Watch for stopped and slowed traffic in the area.

The project is expected to be complete by November 15, 2019.
