Railway work to temporarily close Collins Road near U.S. 17
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Railroad crossing construction along Collins Road near U.S.17 will force hundreds of drivers to find an alternative route.
A spokesperson with the Florida Department of Transportation says that the closure of Collins Road, at the train crossing, is scheduled to start Monday around 7:30 a.m. and last until Tuesday at 5 p.m.
During this time period, CSX will replace the railroad ties and the crossing surface.
To get around roadwork, drivers will be detoured from U.S. 17, to Interstate 295, onto Blanding Boulevard and back to Collins Road.
