Current Projects

834-roadThe Public Works Construction & Maintenance Division is continually looking for ways to keep Lakeland citizens better informed about road, sidewalk, lake, stormwater, drainage, and other infrastructure improvements. The latest tool is a telephone line devoted to giving you the latest project information. The ROAD phone (834-ROAD) is updated at least weekly and has information regarding when, where, what, and for how long a project will take place. The message includes suggestions for alternate routes when they are suggested, and notifies you when roads will be closed totally.

Please check this phone message frequently and encourage your family and neighbors to do the same.

Frank Lloyd Wright Way Intersection Improvements

Intersection improvements will begin June 13th at Frank Lloyd Wright Way and Hollingsworth Road.  While no major delays are expected, motorists are asked to proceed with caution while traveling through intersection. 

Dixie Place

Construction crews are repairing a storm pipe on Dixie Place between Main Street and Lake Bonny Drive.  Starting Sunday, July 10th, Dixie Place will close to through traffic during the afternoon hours, therefore, residents may access this area from Main Street.   For questions or concerns please contact Mike Whigham at (863) 834-3300.

South Lincoln Avenue Sidewalk (Beacon to Ariana)

The City of Lakeland will soon begin construction on the Lincoln Avenue Sidewalk Project. This project will construct a sidewalk on the east side of Lincoln Avenue from Beacon Road to Ariana Street. Drainage improvements are also included from Roberts Street to Leyte Street. Construction is expected to occur from June 27, 2016 to December 2016.

It will be necessary for periodic lane closures during construction hours. We will make every effort to minimize delays; however, detours and minor delays should be expected.

We understand this creates an inconvenience to many residents. We appreciate your patience while we work to improve the City’s infrastructure. All construction is proposed within public right-of-way.  Please contact the Construction and Maintenance Division at (863) 834-3300 for questions or concerns.

Notice of construction to residents.

The Public Works Construction and Maintenance division will be reconstructing damaged sidewalks along both sides of Clarendon Avenue in the near future.

We anticipate beginning the sidewalk repairs on or around August 1st
