Accident Leaves Thornhill Rd./ 540 Intersection Prone To Traffic Problems
A 4 vehicle accident
that occurred this morning destroyed the power supply and signal control
box to the traffic light at the intersection of Thornhill Rd. and 540
(Winter Lake Rd.) in Winter Haven.
As a result, the Polk County Sheriff's Office is asking motorists to use
caution when approaching this intersection. Traffic on 540 will be
free-flowing while stop signs will face motorists traveling on Thornhill
Rd. Please be patient and cautious when attempting to cross 540 on
Crews are setting up temporary polls and running additional wiring to
replace the damaged power supply and signal control box. County
officials hope to have the traffic signal fully functional by the
beginning of next week.
