SR 7 Chip Seal Scheduled Wednesday-Thursday

Vernon to Wirt

JEFFERSON & JENNINGS COUNTIES—Indiana Department of Transportation maintenance crews plan to chip seal a 15½-mile segment of State Road 7 in Jefferson and Jennings counties, weather permitting, next Wednesday and Thursday (JUNE 13 & 14).   


Motorists may encounter short delays at moving worksites on S.R. 7 between S.R. 3 south of North Vernon and a terminus at Wirt—located 1.87 miles south of S.R. 250 north of Madison.  Flaggers will direct single-lane traffic while pilot vehicles will lead vehicles past surface treatment operations.   


This chip seal will seal the SR. 7 pavement with liquid asphalt.  It will be topped (and quenched) with small limestone chips.  The operation extends service life and lowers maintenance costs while restoring surface friction for skid resistance, maneuverability and driver safety.
