Sanford – Crews will close Palmetto Street at the Central Florida Commuter Rail Corridor tracks from July 19 at 7:00 a.m. until July 20 at 7:00 p.m., as they continue work on the SunRail project. Traffic will be directed to use Lake Mary Boulevard, North Country Club Road and East Crystal Lake Avenue as a detour around the closure.


The work includes the reconstruction of the Palmetto Street at-grade crossing, installing a precast concrete track crossing, and moving the crossing signal.


The Florida Department of Transportation urges you to obey railroad crossing signals and never cross a closed crossing gate.
