CSX has closing railroad crossings for continued rail repair and replacement effective March 12, 2019:

The sidewalk and road repairs that will need to be completed City staff are not expected to begin until Wednesday, March 20, 2019.
CSX contractors have cut trenches along the railroad at several locations downtown. These cuts extended into the pedestrian path that crosses the railroad. The affected City of Lakeland intersection are:
N Canal Avenue
Interlachen Parkway (Scheduled for March 5, 2019)

City crews have secured plywood at these locations along the walkway as a temporary measure until such time as CSX finishes up their rail work. The City of Lakeland has been provided tentative dates as to when this work will occur. Citizens are asked to use caution as they navigate the sidewalks adjacent to the railroad at these locations.
