County Line Road and US 92 Intersection Improvements

LAKELAND, FL

 (February 9, 2017) - The City of Lakeland has scheduled a public meeting regarding the proposed County Line Road and US 92 Intersection Improvements Project. The meeting will be held Thursday, March 9th, 2017 from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm at the Lakeland Police Department Community Room located at 219 North Massachusetts Avenue, Lakeland, FL 33801.



This project proposes to construct a new northbound right turn lane and a new eastbound right turn lane at the intersection of County Line Road and US 92.
