Southbound traffic will be directed through a detour with posted signage.

Motorists should be aware of an upcoming detour when traveling southbound on Spring Garden Avenue (State Road (S.R.) 15A) approaching Minnesota Avenue from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, April 27, for railroad crossing work.

Both southbound lanes will be closed from Minnesota Avenue to West Wisconsin Avenue. Traffic will be detoured to westbound Minnesota Avenue, southbound Grand Avenue and eastbound New York Avenue (S.R. 44). Detour signage is planned to direct motorists to the alternate routes.

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is providing project support to CSX, so they can safely conduct the work. These closures are necessary to upgrade the railroad crossings, which increases safety for both road users and train traffic. Construction times and schedules are subject to change due to inclement weather or other circumstances.

For more information about the project, contact Matthew Crawford with CSX at 386-325-7729.

For questions, please contact the FDOT District Five Communications Office at FDOT-D5COMM@dot.state.fl.us.

FDOT urges motorists to use caution near all railroad crossings and when driving in areas with road construction. Please slow down, follow posted detour signs and stay alert.
