Bartow, Fla. (February 2, 2018) — After the morning rush hour on Tuesday, North Crystal Lake Drive will be closed for several hours as Southeastern University installs protective netting at its baseball complex. North Crystal Lake Drive will be closed again for a half-day on Wednesday to complete the installation. Eastbound traffic approaching work zone will detour onto Smithfield Avenue and westbound traffic will detour onto Lowery Avenue. Motorists are encouraged to use South Crystal Lake Drive as an alternate route to bypass work zone. Commuters can expect delays and should allow more time for trips through this area.
