Street Closure Notification: Portion of S Kentucky Avenue to Close for Sewer Repair

LAKELAND, FL (December 30, 2020) | The Water Utilities Wastewater Collection Division will close off a portion of South Kentucky Avenue just north of East Lemon Street in order to repair a degraded sewer service. This closure will begin this coming Sunday evening (January 3, 2021) at 11 p.m. and it will remain in place for the duration of the project. The project is scheduled to take approximately 12 hours to complete, barring any unforeseen circumstances.  South Kentucky Avenue will be fully closed at the intersection of East Lemon Street and at the service alley located south of Main Street. Appropriate traffic control and detour signage will be in place in order to least impact pedestrians and vehicular traffic.

The map below details the closure and project area.  For specific questions regarding the project, please contact Sean Russ, Engineer Technician for Wastewater at 863.834.6592.
