LAKELAND, FL (September 15, 2023) | The City of Lakeland has contracted with Kamminga & Roodvets, Inc. to install approximately 1,700 linear feet of 24-inch gravity sewer main and 11 manholes along a portion of Griffin Road. The project will replace older infrastructure along Griffin Road between Providence Road and Pyramid Parkway. The project is scheduled to start September 25, 2023, with an expected April 7, 2024, completion date. Work will be done Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. for the duration of the project.
To ensure the smooth flow of traffic and the safety of all residents and workers, the appropriate measures and detours will be in place as part of a traffic management plan for the project. Message boards will soon be in place to notify motorist and residents about the upcoming road closures and traffic impacts.
Attached are Maintenance of Traffic (MOT) drawings that detail the extents of the construction zone along with detours that will impact traffic along Griffin Road and the roads that branch into/from Griffin Road in the impacted area. The existing gravity main will remain in service until wastewater can be routed to the new gravity sewer main, therefore water/wastewater customers will not be impacted.
