Lane closures along Polk Parkway for week of 6/29 - 7/5/2013

Polk County, Florida-- The Florida Department of Transportation wants to make sure Polk County commuters are prepared for lane closures along Polk Parkway starting today, June 30. 

According to their weekly advisory, the miling and resurfacing project between mileposts 8 and 21 is still underway, so as we enter the first week of July, drivers should keep the following in mind:

  • Watch for nightly, single lane closures, Sunday through Friday from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., through the project limits
  • Be alert for intermittent closures at bridge overpasses for expansion joint replacement and rumble strip installation..
  • Weather dependent ramp closures at the Old Dixie Highway eastbound-on and westbound-off ramps are scheduled for Monday and Tuesday nights, July 1-2.  Motorists should use US 92 at Exit 17.

FDOT also provided a full description of the project: 

This $15.4 million project includes milling and resurfacing the roadway and paved shoulders, including ramps, from Mile Post (MP) 8.1 to 21.7.  The project includes reconstructing the side slope embankment from MP 9.49 to 9.51, and from 18.4 to 18.9.  Full-depth reconstruction of the roadway will occur from MP 14.9 to 17.3. 

The project runs from the Western Mainline Toll plaza through the Central and to the Eastern Mainline Toll Plaza.  This includes the two-lane section from Old Dixie Highway to the Eastern Mainline Plaza.  The area of deep reconstruction is between Exit 14, SR 540, and east of Exit 17, US 92.

All of the milling and resurfacing operations will occur from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.  No work requiring a temporary lane closure will be done on Friday or Saturday nights.

The area requiring full-depth reconstruction will be done mostly during the day and will be performed behind temporary concrete barrier wall.  In this area, one travel lane will be shut down around the clock for the duration of the full-depth reconstruction work.

Milling and resurfacing began on June 17, 2012.  This project is nearing completion.
