Haines City sewer project to close Johnson Avenue for one month

BARTOW — Johnson Avenue (County Road 580) will close Monday to through-traffic at 24th Street North in Haines City for one month as part of a year-long municipal sewer line replacement project. 24th Street North will also close between Melbourne Avenue and Johnson Avenue to allow crews to safely excavate the roadways to replace existing sewer lines and manholes in the local service area. Westbound through-traffic on Johnson Avenue approaching 24th Street North will be detoured at 30th Street, while eastbound through-traffic will be diverted at U.S. Highway 17/92. Both detours bypass work areas along Melbourne Avenue. Motorists can expect backups and minor commuting delays.
