Sewer repairs will disrupt a block of Cleveland Heights Boulevard and a short segment of the Three Parks Trail starting Friday and lasting up to a week, the city of Lakeland announced. The two northbound lanes will be closed to traffic for a block south of Carlton Street, with the southbound lanes handling traffic in both directions.

In addition, the sidewalk on the east side of Cleveland Heights and a portion of the Three Parks walking and bicycling trail just north of the Dog Leg Woods Dog Park parking area will be closed during the work.

In the map, the red shows the block where the northbound lanes of Cleveland Heights will be closed, and the yellow shows the portion of the Three Parks Trail that will be closed.

City crews are scheduled to start setting up the road closure on Friday in preparation for repairs to a broken 24-inch sewer line behind 817 Carlton St.

Crews will set up a bypass pipe over the weekend and into Monday, according to a city news release. That will let them repair the 24-inch pipe on Tuesday and dimantle the bypass on Wednesday.

While the repair location is nearly 30 feet east of Cleveland Heights Boulevard, crews need to set up the bypass at the upstream manhole, which is in the middle of the northbound lanes, according to the news release.

“There is already a lane closure in place just to the south of this location for another project. Traffic control will make sure that the setup is compatible with the existing lane closure,” according to the news release.
