County Road 7 will remain open to traffic, but drivers will experiences shoulder closures and/or lane shifts due to hydrant relocation and sidewalk construction on County Road 7 (Central Avenue) between Borchert Street and Lincoln Street, in Mapleton. This construction is scheduled to begin toward the end of this week. This work is part of a larger project to reconstruct County Road 7 south of Borchert St. adjacent to the new school property. Closure of County Road 7 for the roadway reconstruction is expected to occur within the next couple few weeks.
