Three lanes of SR 7 closed this morning near Brilliant due to another rockfall event
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Tuesday, January 31, 2012) – Three lanes of State Route 7 are closed this morning due to another rockfall event just south of the location that restricted traffic two weeks ago north of Brilliant in Jefferson County.
Both southbound lanes and the northbound passing lane of SR 7 are closed today until ODOT officials can reevaluate the hillside.
Southbound traffic will be detoured onto SR 151 west from SR 7 to SR 152 south to SR 150 east back to SR 7.
The northbound travel lane reopens open to traffic.
