Sewer Line Repairs to Keep Griffin Road
Eastbound Travel Lane Closed Until Monday
Emergency repairs have temporarily fixed a broken City of Lakeland 24” gravity sewer main beneath the sidewalk along the eastbound travel lane of Griffin Road just west of Pyramid Parkway in Lakeland. Because the pipe is so close to the edge of pavement, the travel lane will remain closed until Monday to ensure temporary repairs function properly. Permanent repairs are expected in the coming weeks. Sidewalk along the work zone will remain closed until all repairs are finished and the sidewalk is restored.
Motorists can still expect delays traveling eastbound and are urged to drive with care in this area.
