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.

South Massachusetts Avenue ADA Ramps

Beginning 1/14/16 City crews will be reconstructing curb ramps, sidewalk, and driveway aprons to ADA compliance along both sides of Massachusetts Ave from Lake Morton to Cedar Street. Lanes will be reduced to one lane adjacent to work zones for motorist and construction personnel safety. Pedestrians should avoid affected areas and follow pedestrian signage for safe crossings. Every effort will be made to keep delays to a minimum. This work is expected to last three months.

North Florida Avenue Sidewalk

City of Lakeland crews will be constructing drainage improvements and installing a new sidewalk along North Florida Ave between Carpenters Way and Lakeland Hills Blvd.  Expect periodic flagging operations with minor delays. This project is expected to last two months weather permitting.

Central Avenue Drainage Improvements

A contractor working for the City of Lakeland will be constructing a new storm drain system along Central Avenue south of Greenwood Street. Construction will require closing segments of Central Avenue from December 2015 to April 2016.
