Current Projects

834-roadThe Public Works Construction & Maintenance Division is continually looking for ways to keep Lakeland citizens better informed about road, sidewalk, lake, stormwater, drainage, and other infrastructure improvements. The latest tool is a telephone line devoted to giving you the latest project information. The ROAD phone (834-ROAD) is updated at least weekly and has information regarding when, where, what, and for how long a project will take place. The message includes suggestions for alternate routes when they are suggested, and notifies you when roads will be closed totally.

Please check this phone message frequently and encourage your family and neighbors to do the same.

West Highland Street Sidewalk Project

Sidewalk and drainage improvements will be constructed on the South and North side of West Highland Street.  Motorist can expect periodic lane closures and minor delays while the project is in progress.


New Jersey Multi-Use Trail

City crews are constructing a multi-use trail on New Jersey Road between Edgewood Drive and Crystal Lake Drive. Motorists may encounter delays due to periodic lane closures with flaggers.

Hollingsworth Roundabout

The Phase I construction of the Lake Hollingsworth Roundabout is beginning with the Utility Relocations starting January 26, 2015.   The construction work will require lane closures and routing of pedestrian and bicycle traffic through the construction area. Phase I work includes the utility relocations, construction of a new sidewalk around the northwest corner of the intersection, and relocation of the walk path on the lakeside. If possible, avoid the intersection of Lake Hollingsworth Drive and Hollingsworth Road until Phase I Construction is completed.  Please follow all detours and be patience when waiting for the lanes to  re-open.  Watch for construction equipment as they will be working in the same area as your traveling.  Phase I construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of March.
