Bartow, Fla. (August 11, 2017) — Starting Monday, a three-week long Polk County drainage project to replace a pair of stormwater pipes will close Fussell Road about a half-mile east of the intersection with State Road 33 north of Polk City. To let workers safely expedite repairs, through-traffic will be detoured along Deen Still Road and Old Grade Road to bypass the work zone. Depending on their destination, this detour could be lengthy for local commuters. All motorists are encouraged to drive with caution, obey traffic signs, and to add time to trips through this area.
Contact Bill Skelton with the Polk County Roads & Drainage Division at 863-535-2200 for further details.
