Published on Mar 13, 2023

Bartow, Fla. (March 13, 2023) — The closure of Yates Road at the intersection with West Pipkin Road previously scheduled to start today has been postponed until Wednesday morning March 15. Work to install a water line as part of Polk County’s West Pipkin Road widening project should be completed and roadway reopened on Sunday, March 19. Traffic will still be detoured along Lunn Road to bypass work zone during closure.
Motorists are advised to drive carefully, be alert to crews and equipment, and follow detour signs. While detour is short, delays and congestion can be expected, especially during peak-hour drive times.
