The Tennessee Department of Transportation has advised that a design consultant will be selected in three weeks to design the traffic signals at Highway 70 and Canada Road. The actual schedule of construction has not been established.
We will be closely monitoring this process and requesting that TDOT expedite the design and construction of the traffic signals.
The traffic signals will be funded by a safety grant and will be designed and built at no cost to the City of Lakeland. A fully signalized intersection with left hand turns in all directions is being designed.
