Lawrence-7 Reopens To One Lane At The Narrows

Chillicothe - State Route 7 in Lawrence County is now open to one lane of traffic at the Narrows where it was closed earlier today due to a slip.

Crews from the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Lawrence County Highway Maintenance Facility are working at the 17.0-mile marker, midway between Athalia and the Gallia County line, to clear the route, shoulder and ditch area of mud and debris.

The lane restriction is anticipated to be in effect through the evening hours, and traffic will be maintained by flaggers. Motorists are reminded to exercise additional caution when traveling through the work zone.
