Osceola County Residents plan accordingly: Old Tampa Highway will be closed to traffic between Broad St. and Jack Calhoun Dr. for 10 days beginning  Monday June 22 with an expected reopening date of Friday July 3.

The closure will focus on the building of barrier walls allowing for the reconstruction of Old Tampa Highway to be done in a more safe and efficient manner, also preventing the need for an additional 4 weeks of closure of the road.

Suggested alternate routes to use during the closure are U.S 17-92 and U.S 192, or follow the detour signs to alternate routes prior to the construction area.

Dates and times are subject to change depending on weather and any day to day circumstances that may delay the process of construction.
