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.

West Highland Street Sidewalk Project

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


New Jersey Multi-Use Trail

City crews are constructing a multi-use trail on New Jersey Road between Edgewood Drive and Crystal Lake Drive. Motorists may encounter delays due to periodic lane closures with flaggers.

Rose Street - Bus Bay

Public Works Construction and Maintenance crews will begin construction on the Rose Street Bus Bay on March 30, 2015. Periodic east bound lane closures can be expected on Rose Street between East Main Street and South Ingraham Avenenue from 7am to 5pm daily. Detours will be clearly marked.

New Jersey Rd – Crystal Lake to Edgewood

Contractors working for the City of Lakeland will begin milling and resurfacing New Jersey Rd. Temporary detours can be expected and delays are expected. Residents are encouraged to find alternate routes. Work is expected to take one week to complete weather permitting.
