    Bartow, Fla. (February 10, 2017) — Multiple CSX railroad repair projects will disturb traffic across Polk County in the coming days and weeks. Some preliminary work may already be underway. Beginning Monday, track upgrades scheduled in Auburndale will affect the following roads; Bridgers Avenue, McKean Street, Ariana Street, and Derby Avenue.


    On Tuesday, the Eagle Lake Loop Road crossing west of Pollard Road is scheduled to close until Friday; and the Old Bartow Lake Wales Road crossing west of County Road 653 in southeast Winter Haven will close on Wednesday for an unspecified period to permit safe rail repairs. CSX crews will also initiate repairs Thursday on State Road 559 (Main Street) in Auburndale and at the crossing along State Road 60 in West Lake Wales.


    Traffic will be detoured around closures. Motorists can expect delays and should add time to their trips through these areas. For additional information, contact CSX at 1-800-232-0144 or (904) 955-6110.
