Plant City, FL -- The intersection of Sam Allen Road (CR 580) and Paul Buchman Highway (SR 39A) is now open to motorists!
The intersection reopened late Thursday evening, January 16, after being closed since mid-September for various construction activities, including replacement of the CSX railroad tracks, utility relocations, and roadway construction associated with the Sam Allen Road widening project.
While the intersection has been reopened, drivers should be alert to workers and traffic shifts through the area as construction continues to rebuild and widen Sam Allen Road between Alexander Street and Park Road. The intersection is not in its final configuration and some lanes will be closed until additional work is completed to the east and west. Final paving through the intersection will take place later in the project. All work on the corridor is expected to be completed by summer 2021.
