The periodic weekend closures of Route 7 in Branchville, with traffic detoured through the center of town, are over — done! — and weekday work at the Route 35 bridge near Fox Hill is progressing toward a late-November return to two-way traffic.
“That was the last closure,” John Dunham, district engineer with the state Department of Transportation, said after Route 7 was shut down in Branchville Friday, Oct. 13, and Saturday, Oct. 14. “We opened up late Saturday night. Only minor work remaining.”
