Drivers traveling State Road 71 in Marianna can expect temporary lane closures between Big Bone Lane and Malloy Plaza Road through Sunday, Jan. 19.
Lane closures remain in effect from 7:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily. Workers are constructing the upcoming detour that will take place when the intersection at S.R. 71 and Whitetail Drive is reconstructed.
This work is part of the ongoing $8.5 million project to resurface S.R. 71 between the Calhoun County line to Magnolia Road. Major work includes concrete reconstruction between Malloy Plaza and the TA Truck Stop that will occur on one side of the roadway at a time. There will be no detours on S.R. 71. However, when the east side intersection of S.R. 71 and Whitetail Drive is reconstructed, traffic accessing Whitetail Drive will be detoured to Malloy Plaza Road and Trailer Park Drive. Construction is slated for completion in fall 2014.
