News Release: Florida Department of Transportation

Chipley –State Road (S.R.) 71 traffic between Malloy Plaza Road and the TA Truck Stop in Jackson County will encounter minor traffic delays beginning Monday, Jan. 27. The northbound lanes will be transitioned to handle two-way traffic in preparation for concrete reconstruction work. Once work begins on the east side of the S.R. 71 and the Whitetail Drive intersection, motorists seeking to access Whitetail Drive will utilize Malloy Plaza Road and Trailer Park Drive. A temporary traffic signal has been installed at the I-10 eastbound and westbound ramps to assist with traffic flow through the interchange. Additional signs will be placed along the temporary detour route to assist motorists with directions to local businesses located off East Whitetail Drive.

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. Construction is slated for completion in fall 2014. Drivers are reminded to use caution and obey the posted speed limit when driving through a construction zone.
