LAKELAND, FL (November 1, 2021) – The City of Lakeland recently started the Main Street Pathway project that includes the construction of a 10-foot-wide asphalt multi-use trail on the south side of Main Street between Interlachen Parkway and Longfellow Boulevard.  The project scope includes the installation of ADA-deployment and bench pads for six Citrus Connection mass transit stops along the way.  The project also includes updated traffic signalization at the Longfellow Boulevard intersection.

The pathway project is 100% funded by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). The total estimated cost for the Main Street Pathway and Transit Enhancements project is $802,004.48. This includes design, construction, engineering, and inspection costs.  The pathway project will provide a completely new bicycle/pedestrian facility on the south side of Main Street that does not exist today, filling in an important missing gap between Lake Bonny and Longfellow Boulevard, where Polk County’s new sidewalk begins and continues east.  The project is currently underway and is projected to be completed in April 2022.
