S.R. 7 closure moves to final location Wednesday in Jennings County

Should be complete by the 31st

The current closure on S.R. 7 in Jennings County will move north on or after Wednesday, October 16, weather permitting, as crews begin work on the fourth and final box culvert between Vernon and the Jefferson County line.

The road will close 5.71 miles north of the county line on Wednesday, just south of the S.R. 3/S.R. 7 junction near Vernon for box culvert maintenance and repair. The road will reopen at the previous culvert location, where crews have been working since mid-September.

The official state detour for the closure is S.R. 3 to S.R. 256. Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead and use caution near the work zone. The project is currently expected to be complete by October 31, 2019. All work is weather dependent.

Dave O'Mara Contractor Inc. was awarded the project for $1.4 million in August 2018.
