Slide correction, paving begins May 28 on State Road 7/Hanging Rock Hill in Madison
The project will close State Road 7/Hanging Rock Hill from Paddy’s Lane at the south end of the hill to Terrace Drive on the north end for approximately 90 days for slide correction work.
A soil nail wall will be used to stabilize sliding roadway by installing steel bars into the hillside that are reinforced with concrete.
Following the completion of the slide correction, asphalt resurfacing and preventative maintenance will take place on S.R. 7 from S.R. 56/Main Street, downtown, to Industrial Drive on Madison’s hilltop. Lane closures will be in effect, following completion of the slide correction, beginning at the south end, moving north as paving crews progress.
Motorists should expect delays along the route while paving is taking place. All work is expected to be complete by November 1, 2019.
The official state detour for the closure is State Road 56/Hanover Hill to State Road 62/Clifty Drive.
