Published on May 21, 2021

Bartow, Fla. (May 21, 2021) —CSX Transportation repairs to the Ewell Road rail crossing between Old Hwy. 37 and South Florida Avenue originally scheduled for yesterday have been rescheduled for Monday morning. Work to correct loose concrete panels and exposed fasteners will close both westbound travel lanes until mid-afternoon. Westbound Ewell Road traffic will be detoured at South Florida Avenue with Shepherd Road and West Pipkin Road as alternate routes to bypass closure. Commuters are advised to expect delays and to add extra time to trips through this area. Polk County regrets any traffic disruption resulting from the closure, but recognizes rail repairs are necessary and will make for better and safer driving conditions when completed. To report a rail crossing issue or complaint, contact CSX at (877) 835-5279 or
