Bartow, Fla. (November 8, 2019) — Polk County will close Singletary Road on Tuesday morning for three weeks to replace a failing drainage culvert beneath the roadway just north of H. Kelly Road in unincorporated Fort Meade. Traffic will be detoured along County Line and Avon Park Cutoff Road. Travel delays should be expected due to the length of detour bypassing work zone. Motorists should add extra time to trips through the area. Call Bill Skelton with the Polk County Roads & Drainage Division at 863-535-2200 for further details.
