BARTOW, Fla. – Contractor crews will be making asphalt repairs on the roundabout on Drane Field Road at Don Emerson Drive (Lakeland Linder International Airport entrance) starting at 9 a.m. on Friday, June 16.
The small section of the roundabout to be closed is located between the Drane Field Road westbound entrance and Drane Field Road eastbound exit. Motorists will be able to enter the roundabout at any of the four entrances: Drane Field Road westbound, Publix Corporate Parkway, Drane Field Road eastbound and Don Emerson Road. Motorists needing to travel in the roundabout beyond the Drane Field Road eastbound exit must exit at Drane Field Road, make a U-Turn further down and reenter the roundabout heading west on Drane Field Road. Flaggers will be onsite directing traffic.
Barring any unforeseen conditions, repairs will be complete by the end of the day. Those traveling in the area are reminded to use caution, add extra travel time and watch for periodic traffic stops with flaggers directing traffic.
