The reconstruction of McKee Road includes the construction of a new Badger State Trail Bridge over McKee Road. During the construction of the bridge, a detour of the path will be in place until the end of August 2020, provided favorable weather and material delivery outcomes.
For northbound travel, the detour will divert path traffic onto Sub Zero Parkway to Commerce Park Drive to Cottonwood Street, then use the Military Ridge Trail to the Bike Roundabout to regain access to the Badger State Trail. Directional signage will be posted along the detour to alert cyclists of route changes.
For southbound travel, the detour will divert Badger State Trail traffic onto the Military Ridge Trail, then exiting onto Cottonwood Street to Commerce Park Drive to Sub Zero Parkway to regain access onto the Badger State Trail. Directional signage will be posted along the detour to alert cyclists of route changes.
Cyclists that use Seminole Highway are encouraged to use the detour route because the construction on Seminole Highway around McKee Road will cause the lanes to narrow to 11-feet, with one lane of travel in each direction.
