Originally scheduled to begin October 8, 2018, the start date of the detour was delayed due to rain. The road will be closed between Highways 19 and 67. Traffic will be routed to US Highway 71 via Highways 19 and 67 during the detour.

The detour is part of the Highways 19 and 71 construction project, which includes the replacement of a traffic signal at DeKalb Street.
