CSX has railroad crossings closed for continued rail repair and replacement effective March 12, 2019:
- N Missouri Avenue
- N Tennessee Avenue
- N Ingraham Avenue
The sidewalk and road repairs that need completed city staff will begin Wednesday, March 20, 2019.
CSX contractors have cut trenches along the railroad at several locations downtown. These cuts extended into the pedestrian path that crosses the railroad. The affected City of Lakeland intersection are:
N Canal Avenue
Interlachen Parkway (Scheduled for March 5, 2019)
N Ingraham Avenue
N Tennessee Avenue
N Florida Avenue (scheduled for March 13, 2019)
N Missouri Avenue
Fairbanks Street (scheduled for February 14, 2019)
10th Street (scheduled for February 14, 2019)
City crews secured plywood at these locations along the walkway as a temporary measure until such time CSX finishes their rail work. The City of Lakeland was provided tentative dates as to when this work will occur. Citizens are asked to use caution as they navigate the sidewalks adjacent to the railroad at these locations.
