This is the official blog of the City of Lakeland, Florida. Check back frequently to stay up to date with all that going on in our beautiful city!

Starting Monday August 13, 2012, Lakeland Electric will be closing portions of Lake Miriam Drive from South Florida Avenue to Cleveland Heights Boulevard from August 13 through August 17, 2012 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. in order to install new steel power poles. The closure is necessary to allow Lakeland Electric enough room to relocate electric power poles and overhead electric power lines along Lake Miriam Drive.  This road closure may be followed by lane closures as the project proceeds.

This work is necessary to continue to provide electricity safely and reliably to Lakeland Electric customers.  A message board is installed on Lake Miriam Drive to advise those already using this route of the pending closure.  Traffic will be clearly routed by the appropriate signs and barricades to assist with an orderly flow of traffic.  Questions should be directed to Lakeland Electric’s Project Manager, Mark Musser at (863) 834-6496.
