LAKELAND, Fla. (WFLA) – State and local leaders plan to discuss ways to improve a dangerous Lakeland road. Reports show at least three people have been killed along Clubhouse Road since 2014.
To promote pedestrian safety, Polk County recently partnered with the Florida Department of Transportation to study the Clubhouse Road right-of-way corridor from U.S. 98 to Live Oak Road, according to a media release.
County staffers are hosting a public workshop at the First Baptist Church in Highland City on Thursday at 6 p.m.
They plan seek input regarding improvement options such as new lighting, sidewalks, speed feedback signs and left-turn lanes.
This meeting is open to everyone, the release said. A brief presentation of the Clubhouse Road Safety Study will be followed by an open-forum discussion.
