Bartow, Fla. (May 10, 2022) — Crossing upgrades by CSX Transportation will temporarily close two roads in Bartow this week. Starting Wednesday morning May 11, North Jackson Avenue will close for three days from East North Street to East Boulevard Street. Traffic will be detoured along nearby streets to bypass work at crossing with only brief delays expected. Following work at this neighborhood crossing, CSX will then close East Mann Road east of Spessard Holland Parkway (U.S. Highway 17) on Friday morning May 13 at their tracks between the Peace River Citrus Products and Bartow Ethanol plants in the industrial/commercial area of Bartow south of the Bartow Agricultural Arena. Only business traffic will be affected along this dead end road during the two-day closure.
