Portion of S Florida Avenue Will Close for Lakeland Wastewater Collection Project
LAKELAND, FL (October 6, 2020) | On Sunday, October 11th, a contractor for the City of Lakeland Wastewater Collection Division will begin working on a project to replace a degraded 10” sewer main along the east side of South Florida Avenue from Alamo Drive north to an area about 250 feet north of Horizon Court. This work is expected to take approximately 30 days to complete and will require the closure of the outside northbound lane on the impacted portion of South Florida Avenue for the duration of the project. The lane closure will be in place until the project is completed. With the exception of some minor prep work and setup, the repair work will be done at night to lease impact roadway users. Access to businesses adjacent to the project area will be preserved. There is a PDF map attached showing the project location.
