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.

S Massachusetts Ave 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.

City of Lakeland crews will be constructing a new sidewalk along the East side of Lincoln Ave from Hancock Street to Park Street.
