Current Projects


The 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 863(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.

For questions or concerns, please contact Michael Whigham, Manager of Construction and Maintenance, at (863) 834-3300.

South Lincoln Avenue Sidewalk (Beacon to Ariana)

The City of Lakeland has begun construction on the Lincoln Avenue Sidewalk Project.  This project will construct a sidewalk on the east side of Lincoln Avenue from Beacon Road to Ariana Street.  Drainage improvements are also included from Roberts Street to Leyte Street.  Construction is expected to occur from June 27, 2016 to December 2016.

It will be necessary for periodic lane closures during construction hours. We will make every effort to minimize delays; however, detours and minor delays should be expected.

We understand this creates an inconvenience to many residents. We appreciate your patience while we work to improve the City’s infrastructure. All construction is proposed within public right-of-way.  

Notice of construction to residents.


Clarendon Avenue Sidewalk Improvements

Crews will be repairing sidewalk on Clarendon Avenue.  No delays are expected, however, the presence of construction equipment and personnel will require motorists to use caution.  

Crystal Lake Drive

The eastbound lane of Crystal Lake Drive from New Jersey Road to Bartow Road continues to be closed.  Bike lane and sidewalk construction is scheduled to be complete in December 2016. 

Central Avenue Resurfacing

Central Avenue is scheduled for milling and resurfacing of the existing pavement.  The resurfacing work will be performed from Olive Street to Greenwood Street and on W Highland Street from Central to Pinewood on August 29, 2016.    The work will take one week to complete.  Following milling contractors will be adding new asphalt to roadway.  The roads will remain open to residents.
