County SR 7 driving lanes to close near Duffy
MONROE COUNTY (Friday, February 21,
2014) – To reduce further pavement stress and enhance safety for
motorists traveling State Route 7 in Monroe County, both the northbound and
southbound driving lane of the four lane section near Duffy will be CLOSED
until paving begins this spring. The passing lanes will remain OPEN.
The closure will begin the morning of Monday, February 24th
and continue until the section is paved this
This year’s harsh winter coupled with increased heavy truck
traffic has put more stress on SR 7 than in years past. The closure will help
reduce future pavement deterioration until ODOT begins paving 13 miles of SR 7
including the section near Duffy. A total of $10 million will be invested this
construction season on paving SR 7 in Monroe and Washington counties.
