The project is expected to be completed and the highway reopened on August 28, 2014. This closure will result in traffic being detoured around the construction project via State Highway 73 to County Highway C to County Highway K and back to County Highway H. Signage for the detour route will be posted. Motorists are asked to remain alert to increased traffic along the detour route as well as potential increased truck traffic associated with the construction project.
