State Route 7 northbound open to one lane, southbound remains closed
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Friday, March 11, 2011 - 8:30 a.m.) – State Route 7 northbound is now open to one lane. All four lanes of the highway were closed early this morning just north of Rush Run in Jefferson County due to a mud and rock slide.
One lane northbound will remain closed to allow for cleanup work by crews.
Officials are uncertain when the southbound lanes may reopen to traffic.
