SR 575 Closing for Railroad Crossing Work – Monday, July 22

 Dade City, FL - Beginning Monday, July 22, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and CSX will close SR 575 in Lacoochee. This closure is necessary for CSX to replace the railroad crossing located just east of Sanderson Road.

This section of SR 575 is expected to reopen in approximately 2 weeks, weather permitting. During this closure, motorists will not be able to cross the tracks. Motorists will be detoured around the work zone using US 301, SR 50 and Burwell Road. Access to side streets, businesses and residents will be maintained.

Electronic message boards and detour signs will be used to assist motorists traveling through the detour. Motorists should anticipate heavier than normal volumes of traffic on these roads during this closure.
