A gravel pit that appeared early this week at the corner of Highways 7 and 50 near Zorbaz was shut down by late Tuesday afternoon due to lack of a permit.


The gravel pit appeared for use as "borrow material" for the bridge project on CSAH 7 near Zorbaz, said Hubbard County Engineer David Olsonawski.

The project began Monday. The state aid project includes approach grading and bridge replacement.
