Public Notice: Street Resurfacing Preventative Maintenance Schedule

LAKELAND, FL (January 17, 2024) | The City of Lakeland has a preventative maintenance schedule for street resurfacing and the schedule includes five streets that will be worked on in succession starting January 18, 2024. Contractors working for the City of Lakeland will start milling the asphalt surface down to the road base and then systematically pave the road before moving on to the next street.  Milling for each street is expected to take two days and the resurfacing is expected to take one to two days depending on the length of the street.  Milling on Cleveland Heights Boulevard between Lake Hollingsworth Drive and Edgewood Drive will start January 18, 2024, so vehicular traffic is encouraged to use an alternative route during morning and evening commutes.



Cleveland Heights Boulevard from Lake Hollingsworth Drive to Edgewood Drive – Milling January 18-19, 2024. Paving January 22-23, 2024.

Lake Hunter Drive from King Avenue to Sikes Boulevard – Milling January 22, 2024. Paving January 29, 2024.

W Main Street/Central Avenue from Olive Street to George Jenkins Boulevard – Milling January 23, 2024.  Paving January 30, 2024.

Webster Avenue/7th Street from 10th St. to the North End – Milling January 24 – 25, 2024. Paving January 31 and February 1, 2024

Rose Street from Ingraham Avenue to Fern Road – Milling January 26 and 29, 2024. Paving February 2 & 5, 2024


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.
