LAKELAND, FL (April 9, 2019) | The City of Lakeland will conduct two public meetings to share plans for the proposed roundabout at the intersection of Main Street, Sloan Avenue and Lake Beulah Drive. The two public meetings will be held on Wednesday, April 17, 2019 and Wednesday, April 24, 2019 in the Cafeteria of R.W. Blake Academy located at 510 Hartsell Avenue, Lakeland, Florida 33815. Both meetings will begin at 5:30 p.m. with an open-house format followed by a project presentation at 6:00 p.m. The proposed improvements include converting the signalized intersection into a single lane roundabout with four access points and constructing a Cul-De-Sac at the end of West Lake Beulah Avenue along with additional passive recreational areas.
