  • Five Points Roundabout Construction Begins October 23, 2023

    FIVE POINTS ROUNDABOUT CONSTRUCTION WILL SOON START
    WHO:              City of Lakeland and contractor Gibbs & Register
    WHAT:             Five Points Roundabout Construction
    WHY:               Increase intersection capacity
    WHEN:            Project will start October 23, 2023
    WHERE:          Intersection at West Main Street, West Lemon Street and Sloan Avenue   

    LAKELAND, FL (October 13, 2023) – The Five Points Roundabout construction project will start on October 23, 2023.  The intersection at West Main Street, West Lemon Street and Sloan Avenue will be temporarily closed while the signalized intersection is converted to a single lane roundabout. The $2.2 Million project funded by the City of Lakeland will take approximately nine-months to complete.  The work is being done by Gibbs & Register, a company that specializes in complex construction projects. 

    Ryan Lazenby, Civil Engineer Manager said, “The primary reason for the project is to increase intersection capacity and specifically to eliminate vehicles from backing into George Jenkins Boulevard (SR 600) when waiting at the intersection traffic signal.  Once completed the roundabout will reduce intersection delays, improve safety, and serve as a gateway feature to the Downtown West area.”

    Studies show that roundabouts offer significant safety enhancements and typically result in 90% fewer fatalities and 75% fewer injuries when compared to signalized intersections.  The roundabout will reduce long-term maintenance costs because electric power for signal operations and signal equipment will be eliminated at the intersection once the project is completed.

    Nearby business will remain open during construction and a signed detour route will be in place during all phases of the project to least impact traffic. The contractor has also placed electronic message boards near the project site to provide advance notice to local traffic.

  • Lake Bonny Stormwater Outfall Retrofit Project Begins March 4, 2024

    This project consists of the installation of a nutrient separating pollution control device (PCD) that will be installed at an outfall to Lake Bonny on the north side of North Crystal Lake Drive near its intersection with US Highway 98 North.  The PCD will effectively reduce the amount of sediment, nutrients, and floatable trash entering Lake Bonny from the stormwater outfall at this location.   

    Lake Bonny does not meet current water quality standards due to elevated levels of nutrients and has a mandated Total Maximum Daily Load nutrient reduction requirement.  Previous studies identified the main source of nutrients to Lake Bonny is through stormwater discharge via multiple stormwater outfall locations.  The outfall chosen for this project was shown to contribute significant non-point source nutrient loads to the lake. 

    The Lake Bonny Stormwater Outfall Retrofit Project includes the permitting, construction and installation of an underground PCD with nutrient removal capabilities through use of an innovative biosorption activated media filter and baffle boxes designed to remove sediment and trash from the stormwater flow before it enters the lake.  

    This project begins March 4, 2024 and will take approximately three months to complete.

  • South Bl, Success Av and E Park St Resurfacing Project Begins March 11, 2024

    PUBLIC NOTICE

    SOUTH BOULEVARD, SUCCESS AVENUE AND E. PARK STREET 

    RESURFACING PROJECT

     

    WHO:                  Contractors working for the City of Lakeland

    WHAT:                 Milling and paving project

    WHY:                   Roadway resurfacing part of preventative maintenance schedule

    WHEN:                Milling will start March 11, 2024

    WHERE:             South Boulevard, Success Avenue and East Park Street.

     

    The City of Lakeland will start the paving process on South Boulevard, Success Avenue and East Park Street starting March 11, 2024.  Contractors working for the City of Lakeland will start milling the asphalt surface down to the road base and then systematically move to the next street until all three are milled.  Milling is expected to take at least three days.  

     

    New asphalt will start to be installed March 18, 2024.  Resurfacing after milling is expected to take three days. The roadway must be milled before paving otherwise the elevation of the road would continue to get higher every time a paving project occurred.  Milling before paving prevents driveway and ADA ramp adjustments due to increasing pavement heights. It is common practice to mill down the road before adding a hot paving mix.

     

    This project will be performed during the daytime hours to least impact the residential area. Vehicular traffic will be limited while the contractor is working. During this project, traffic control signs will be in place and flagmen will be there to assists motorists. Delays are to be expected and motorist are encouraged to use an alternative route if possible.

  • Lake Hollingsworth Aquatic Plant Harvesting Project-Complete September 2023

    LAKELAND, FL (May 26, 2023) - The City of Lakeland’s Lakes & Stormwater Division will begin an Aquatic Plant Harvesting project in Lake Hollingsworth to reduce dense vegetation in portions of the lake.  The main objective of this project is to minimize the volume of invasive and nuisance aquatic plant species, promote plant diversity for habitat improvement, open drainage corridors for improved water flow, and enhance water quality through removal of aquatic plants.

    The first phase of the project will have staff focusing on the southern portion of the lake from Patten Heights Street to Crystal Lake Drive. The City has obtained all required permits through the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission for removal of specific aquatic plant species and volume. The project involves utilizing the City’s specialized aquatic harvesting machinery and barges to cut and transport the vegetation to shore.  Harvested vegetation will be transported to a permitted facility for composting.  The cost of the project is estimated at $25,000 and is funded through the Stormwater Utility Fund.

    Throughout the project, Lakes and Stormwater staff will be utilizing the City operated parking lot on the south side of the lake, located at the intersection of Lake Hollingsworth Drive and Buckingham Avenue, resulting in the temporary closing of three trailer spaces. The project’s hours of operation will be Monday through Thursday 6:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. During hours of operation, construction equipment can be expected in the area, with equipment and vehicles periodically entering and leaving the site while also crossing the Lake Hollingsworth recreation path.  The City will provide traffic control at the recreational pathway for the safety of pathway users throughout the project as needed.

    The Project is scheduled to begin June 5, 2023, and will be ongoing through September 2023.
