West Pipkin Road Widening Project to Close Lunn Road for 45 Days

Published: April 26, 2024

Bartow, Fla. (April 26, 2024) — Polk County’s ongoing widening of West Pipkin will close Lunn Road for 45 days starting Tuesday morning April 30. Closure is needed for the installation of a new water main and reinforced concrete drainage pipes under Lunn Road just south of the intersection at West Pipkin Road. Subsequent rebuilding of the Lunn Road approach and connection to the new four-lane West Pipkin Road mainline is also included in the closure schedule. During closure, traffic will be detoured along West Pipkin Road or Parker Road to Old Highway 37 to bypass work zone. Delays and backups are expected. Commuters are advised to drive carefully and to add extra drivetime to trips in the area, especially during peak-hour traffic.

Contact Bill Skelton with the Polk County Roads & Drainage Division at (863) 535-2200 for further details.
