Bartow, Florida -- This morning, April 2, CSX Transportation crews will temporarily close a portion of CR 640 to repair a damaged railroad crossing.
The closure is located about one-mile west of the CR 555 intersection near the Green Bay fertilizer plant southwest of Bartow. Work is expected to take most of the day to complete and will require a detour of all thru-traffic along CR 640 between CR 555 and SR 37.
Motorists are advised to avoid the area if possible. If you do have to take that way, you should add extra time to your commute and be alert of detour signs.
