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.

Sidewalk Construction on Hancock St

Construction began Monday, August 17th 2015. Every effort will be made to alleviate inconveniences however temporary delays should be expected. During construction some driveway aprons will need to be reconstructed to meet standards. We will make every effort to make contact with the property owners that will be affected to schedule the best time for the removal and replacement of their driveway aprons. The City of Lakeland appreciates your patience as we work to enhance pedestrian mobility in your neighborhood.
