Bartow, Fla. (January 11, 2019) — CSX Transportation will temporarily close several of their Combee area rail crossings on Monday. Closures will take place one after another, for two-hours or less, in a westerly order as track components are dropped-off for upcoming upgrades along the CSX railway corridor between East Main Street and U.S. Highway 92. The following crossings will be closed: North Eastside Drive, Fairway Avenue, and North Canal Avenue. The roadway approaches to each crossing will be closed and traffic detoured during the offloading of materials. Delays and backups are expected. Motorists are advised to drive with caution and to add extra time to trips through these areas. Contact Bill Skelton with the Polk County Roads & Drainage Division at 863-535-2200 for further details.
