Bartow, Fla. – Due to rain Wednesday night, an additional 24-hour delay to complete maintenance repairs on US 41 from Goodlette-Frank Road to 10th Street South is needed. Lane closures will stay in effect through Friday, October 13 and subject to change depending on the weather.

Motorists are encouraged to exercise patience and use alternate routes until all lanes have reopened.

Alternate Routes are as follows:

All westbound traffic on US 41, should turn right (northbound) on Airport Road, then turn left (heading west) on Golden Gate Parkway to rejoin US 41.

All eastbound traffic will experience left lane closures at Goodlette-Frank Road and should make a left turn (northbound) on SR 84 (Davis Blvd.) or Airport Road then turn left (heading west) on Golden Gate Parkway to rejoin Goodlette-Frank Road.

The westbound two lanes onto Goodlette-Frank Road are now a constant right turn to ease the flow of traffic. The traffic signal at this location has been updated to reflect the change.

Engineers are also working on the possibility of safely opening one lane during peak hours Friday to alleviate traffic backup. As more information becomes available, we will provide an update.
