Poinciana Boulevard Closed at Railroad Crossing Dec. 2-3


Osceola CountyPoinciana Boulevard will be closed in both directions at the railroad crossing just north of Old Tampa Highway from about 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 2, to approximately 3 a.m. Monday, Dec. 4, to replace the crossing.


Traffic will be directed around the closure as follows:


Local traffic access to all businesses and side streets along Poinciana Boulevard will be maintained. Detour signs will be placed throughout the area to direct drivers. Please see the map below for more information.


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.


Please note that schedules may change due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. Updates are available at www.cflroads.com. Media inquiries can be directed to Communications Manager Steve Olson, 386-943-5479, Steve.Olson@dot.state.fl.us.
