LAKELAND, FL (June 21, 2013) - The Florida Department of Transportation and Lakeland Community Redevelopment Agency (LCRA) are funding improvements around Lake Beulah in order to beautify this gateway into Lakeland and the surrounding neighborhoods and to improve conditions for bicyclists, pedestrians and transit patrons. Through this project, the existing five-foot wide concrete sidewalk will be replaced with an eight- to ten-foot wide asphalt multi-use trail. This project also includes the installation of decorative lighting along the trail, landscaping and transit stop improvements including the construction of a new transit shelter at the Hartsell Avenue intersection.
The City of Lakeland will conduct a public information meeting on Monday, June 24, 2013, from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM at the Lakeland Area Mass Transit District (Citrus Connection) Offices located at 1212 George Jenkins Boulevard, Lakeland. The meeting will be conducted in an open-house format with no formal presentation, allowing attendees to view the displays at their convenience. Materials on display will include illustrations of the proposed improvements and project schedule. City staff will be available to answer questions and address concerns.
