Blasting work continues along the hillside above State Route 7 near Rush Run in
Minor traffic delays are expected between 5:00-5:30 pm each day weather permitting.
During the blast both north and southbound traffic will be stopped for approximately 10 minutes. Motorists should plan ahead to avoid delays.
Only one blast will occur per day.
SR 7 has been reduced to one lane in each direction on the northbound side of the highway between Rayland and Brilliant, since a major landslide occurred in March 2011.
Work is expected to be completed in 2014.
