SR 7 NOW CLOSED At Dupont
The Indiana Department of Transportation closed State Road 7 between C.R. 1000 North and South Main Street at Dupont this morning (JULY 10) as part of a $594,856 2-bridge project. Milestone, the state’s contractor, is removing an existing drainage structure and replacing it with an 11-foot reinforced concrete culvert measuring 32 feet side-to-side.
A second S.R. 7 structure—located 7.15 miles north of S.R. 250 just south of the Jennings County line—will be replaced in August. Removal and replacement of the S.R. 7 bridge over Bear Creek will also require a 30-day closure. The new bridge will measure 20½ feet in length and 32 feet side to side.
