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.

Lake Beulah Trail

As construction continues on Lake Beulah Trail project, motorist should be aware that construction activities will be present around the entire perimeter of Lake Beulah. Although no road closures are planned, minor delays are possible due to equipment and construction activities. 


The Florida Department of Transportation and Lakeland Community Redevelopment Agency (LCRA) are funding the Lake Beulah Trail 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.


Construction is expected to be completed in Spring 2014.  Periodic lane closures are possible throughout the duration of this project.  Motorists are asked to use caution and watch for construction workers within the project area.


Shore Acres Storm Drain Construction

Update May 21, 2014:  Work in the Shore Acres neighborhood is not complete, but no construction activities will take place over the next few weeks. 

West Highland Street Sidewalk Project

Sidewalk will be constructed on the South and North side of West Highland Street from Southern Avenue to Pinewood.  Motorists can expect periodic lane closures and minor delays while the project is in progress.


New Jersey Road Drainage

Drainage improvements have begun on New Jersey Road between Edgewood Drive and Crystal Lake Drive.
