The detours and closures along State Route 7 and U.S. 22 near University Boulevard in Steubenville are about to change.

Lauren Borell, public information officer, Ohio Division of Transportation, District 11 said there will be a 10-day closure, beginning on Oct. 29, for eastbound motorists traveling on University Boulevard for State Route 7.

The detour for that route will be 7th Street to State Route 43/Washington Street back to Ohio 7.

That route adds about 4-to-5 minutes to travel time, and following that nearly 2-week change will be a second phase of construction.

Weather permitting, they are hopeful the project will be completed soon.
