Hamlin Street in Lake Wales Closing One Day for Water Line Installation

Published: December 29, 2023

Bartow, Fla. (Dec. 29, 2023) — A daylong water line installation to extend potable service to a new subdivision will close Hamlin Street just north of Grove Avenue in Lake Wales on Thursday, Jan. 4. Closure is needed to open-cut both travel lanes on Hamlin Street. Work should be finished, and roadway reopened to traffic by the end of day. During closure, traffic will briefly detour along 11th Street and State Road 60 to bypass work zone. Motorists are advised to drive carefully, be alert to crews and equipment, and follow detour signs. While detour is short, delays are likely during peak-hour traffic. Commuters should add extra time to trips through this area. For more details, call Bill Skelton with the Polk County Roads & Drainage Division at (863) 535-2200.
