BARTOW, Fla. – FDOT has closed one of two southbound left turn lanes and one of two southbound through lanes on US 17 at the SR 540 (Cypress Gardens Boulevard) intersection.  These lane closures are necessary as the contractor investigates the cause of a depression in the roadway and begins repairs. It is unknown at this time how long the lanes will remain closed. Motorists should watch for workers and equipment close to the open lanes and expect slow moving traffic and delays during peak-hour drivetimes.
