A major construction project is set cause traffic headaches for drivers in Clearwater. 

McMullen Booth Road will be closed between Drew Street and State Road 590 in both directions to all vehicles, pedestrians and bicycles for a total of five days. The closures will be in effect until Tuesday, April 9. as crews upgrade a CSXT railroad crossing.
