County drainage project to close Fussell Road in Polk City

POLK CITY — Starting April 2nd, a Polk County drainage project to upgrade 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 for two weeks or possibly longer.

Work is needed to complete a project that was halted by Hurricane Irma in September. Current dry weather has created favorable conditions to let workers finish the delayed work.

To safely expedite the installation, 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.

Contact Bill Skelton with the Polk County Roads & Drainage Division at 863-535-2200 for further details.
