Indiana Department of Transportation personnel from the Madison Unit have been scheduled to make asphalt pavement patches and repair concrete ditches along a slide site on State Road 7 next week at Madison.
INDOT crews should be onsite next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (OCT 30, 31 & NOV 1), weather permitting, closing S.R. 7 north of S.R. 56—just north of Irish Hollow—on Hanging Rock Hill. Barricades will be in place each day between 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. stopping traffic at the top of the hill at Harris Street and at the bottom of the hill at Third Street.
The S.R. 7 Hanging Rock Hill slide is slated for mitigation next year. A $2,164,847 state contract was awarded this week to the Paul H. Rohe Company of Aurora for stabilizing the embankment slide and resurfacing S.R. 7 pavement 0.4 miles north of S.R. 56.
