Osceola County – Pleasant Hill Road will be closed at both directions at the railroad crossing between Clay Street and Old Tampa Highway from 12 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 21, through about 3 a.m. Monday, Oct. 23. The closure is needed to replace the crossing.
Traffic will be able to proceed north on South Hoagland Boulevard from Clay Street and south on Pleasant Hill Road from Old Tampa Highway. During the closure, traffic will be directed to use South Orange Blossom Trail, Poinciana Boulevard and U.S. 192 as a detour. Detour signs will be placed throughout the area to direct drivers. Access to businesses will be maintained.
The closure is needed as part of SunRail’s Phase II South extension project, which will add approximately 17.2 miles of new rail line between the Sand Lake Road Station in Orange County and the Poinciana Station in Osceola County. The project also involves double-tracking most of the corridor and improving grade crossings.
