Paving at the intersection of SR 17 and SR 544/CR 544

SR 17 (South 10th Street) at SR 544/CR 544: Construction project: Nightly paving continues through Friday, May 19 at the intersection of SR 17 and SR 544/CR 544. Watch for daytime and nighttime lane closures and traffic shifts with law enforcement directing traffic through the intersection during paving. Crews may also close Verano Drive at CR 544 periodically as needed. Use caution, avoid the intersection if possible and expect delays.

This project includes milling and paving, widening and striping the lanes and turn lanes on CR 544, removing the right-turn slip lane on northbound SR 17 and restriping the lanes for right turn and through traffic, replacing signal poles and upgrading signal equipment, adding lighted street signs, providing pedestrian crosswalks and signals, adding ADA compliant sidewalks and ramps, installing curb and gutter and improving drainage. The contractor is American Lighting and Signalization. Expected completion is spring 2017.


During this exceptionally dry period, the Haines City Police Department will enforce the current Polk County ordinance that prohibits burning.  The Haines City Code Officers are now enforcing the City Ordinance related to fires by issuing mandatory court appearance to violators.  If you have any questions on what is allowed during this time please contact Deputy Chief Jim Elensky at 863-421-3636.fireban
