Beginning Monday, traffic delays are expected on State Route 7 just north of Rush Run in Jefferson County for tree removal in preparation for a slope repair project to begin late this summer.
Rolling road blocks will be used to stop traffic in both directions at 15-minute intervals to allow for tree removal work on the hillside above State Route 7. Work will take place on Monday between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. On Tuesday, work will take place between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Motorists are urged to use an alternate route. This project is expected to take approximately two weeks to complete.
The upcoming $16 million slope repair project will be approximately half a mile in length. It will begin later this year.
