State Road 7 work in Jennings County continues

Closures on State Road 7 in Jennings County will be moving north.

The Indiana Department of Transportation says the current closure, south of Turkey Run, will move north next week as crews begin work on the second of four box culverts between the Jefferson/Jennings County line and Vernon.

On or after Monday, August 26, State Road 7 will close three-and-a-half miles north of the county line at Turkey Run. The road will reopen at the location of the first culvert, about three miles north of the Jefferson/Jennings County line. The new closure is expected to last for approximately 30 days, though the work is dependent on the weather.

The official state detour for the closure is State Road 3 to State Road 256.

Additional closures are planned at the following locations, and will take place after completion of work at each culvert, moving south to north:

– 11.67 miles north of State Road 250, just south of Crosley Fish and Wildlife Area
– 5.71 miles north of Jefferson/Jennings County line, approximately one mile south of State Road 3/ State Road 7 split

The project is expected to be complete by October 31st.
