State Route 7 southbound closed again just north of Rush Run due landslide
New Philadelphia, Ohio (Sunday, March 13, 2011) – The southbound lanes of State Route 7 are once again closed tonight just north of Rush Run in Jefferson County due to a landslide.
All four lanes of SR 7 were closed last Friday due to a mud and rock slide in the same location. However, all lanes but the southbound travel lane were reopened to traffic by late afternoon that day.
Officials are unsure at this time how long the southbound lanes will remain closed. Traffic will be detoured onto SR 150 to Dillonvale, to SR 152 to Smithfield to SR 151 eastbound back to SR 7, and reverse.
Northbound lanes are not affected at this time.
