A portion of South Massachusetts Avenue between East Lime Street and Lake Morton Drive will be closed Aug. 26 to 28 so that rooftop air conditioning equipment can be replaced on the Citizens Bank & Trust Building at 402 S. Kentucky Ave.
The parking spaces along the north side of Lake Morton Drive, east of South Massachusetts Avenue, will also be closed, the city of Lakeland said in a news release. Payne Air Conditioning will be removing the existing cooling tower units on the roof of the building and replacing them with new units. The work requires the use of a large boom crane.
Payne will use a crane with a 197-foot main boom with a 43-foot fly jib. The work is scheduled to take three days. All detours will be clearly marked to reduce the impact to drivers and pedestrians, the city said.
