Starting Sunday, October 8, at 7:00 p.m., through mid-week, during the nighttime hours of 7:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m., U.S. 2/7 will be reduced to one travel lane in each direction between Mountain View Drive and South Park Drive to facilitate roadway work.

Monday, October 9, through Friday, October 13, during the daytime hours of 6:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., the outermost northbound lane of U.S. 2/7 will be closed for independent utility work. Independent utility crews will begin working beneath the interstate bridges continuing south towards South Park Drive (near Burger King).

Motorists are strongly encouraged to use caution while driving through the work zone and pay close attention to signage as traffic patterns will change.


Next week, during the nighttime hours, crews will be conducting roadway work along U.S. 2/7 between Mountain View Drive and South Park Drive under lane closures. On Sunday, October 8, crews will be milling the full width and length of the roadway surface.

Paving operations are anticipated to take place on Tuesday, October 10. Crews will pave the southbound lanes of U.S. 2/7 between Mountain View Drive and South Park Drive. Paving operations are weather-dependent.
