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.

Horney Park Drainage

For the next several weeks city crews will be upgrading the storm drain system in Horney Park and along the north side of E. Hibiscus Drive.  No major delays are expected although construction equipment and vehicles will cause some congestion.

Hancock Street Sidewalk Construction

City of Lakeland crews will be constructing a new sidewalk along the south side of Hancock Street from Lincoln Ave to New York Ave. New sidewalk will also be constructed on the east side of Lincoln Ave from Hancock Street to Park Street. Construction began Monday, August 17th 2015. Every effort will be made to alleviate inconveniences however temporary delays should be expected. During construction some driveway aprons will need to be reconstructed to meet standards. We will make every effort to make contact with the property owners that will be affected to schedule the best time for the removal and replacement of their driveway aprons. The City of Lakeland appreciates your patience as we work to enhance pedestrian mobility in your neighborhood.

Cleveland Heights Bl ADA Ramp Reconstruction

Contractors working for the City of Lakeland will be repairing and replacing sidewalk ramps as part of the future resurfacing of Cleveland Heights Bl from East Edgewood Drive to Westover Street.  Roads will remain open; however, lane closures will occur.  Work is expected to take 4 weeks to complete.
