Emergency Water Main Repairs Slowing Ariana Street Traffic in Lakeland

Published on Mar 16, 2020

Bartow, Fla. (March 16, 2020) — Emergency repairs are underway this evening to repair a broken water main along Ariana Street near Faye Avenue in the Wabash area of Lakeland. City water utilities crews are currently directing traffic through the work zone along one travel lane.  Heavy congestion is slowing traffic and causing backups. Motorists are encouraged to avoid delays by taking alternate routes to bypass area. Both travel lanes will reopen when traffic can safely resume or after repairs are complete and service is restored. Commuters are advised to drive with caution, obey traffic signs, and be alert to workers and equipment.
