OSCEOLA COUNTY — Reconstruction work is expected to begin soon on Mackinaw Trail between 11 Mile and 14 Mile roads.

According to Osceola County Road Commission Manager Luke Houlton, once work begins the road will be closed to thru traffic with a detour set up using U.S. 131 between 11 Mile and 14 Mile roads. At times the road will be completely impassable between the bulk propane tank and 14 Mile Road. The residences along Mackinaw Trail, 205th Avenue and 13 Mile Road will only be accessible from 11 Mile Road.

If the contractor, DJ McQuestion, is able to stay on schedule, the road should be reopened to traffic by May 15.
