State Road 7 work continues in Jennings County

Work on State Road 7 in Jennings County continues. The current closure is expected to move north on or after Wednesday, October 16th. Crews will begin work on the fourth and final box culvert between Vernon and the Jefferson County line.

Officials with the Indiana Department of Transportation say State Road 7 will close 5.71 miles north of the county line on Wednesday, just south of the junction of State Road 3/State Road 7 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.

INDOT says the official state detour for the closure is State Road 3 to State Road 256. Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead and use caution near the work zone.

The project is currently expected to be complete by October 31st. However, all work is dependent on the weather.
