CLERMONT – The Lake County Board of County Commissioners will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the newly completed Lakeshore Bridge construction project on Lakeshore Drive in Clermont. The ceremony will be held on Monday, July 23 at 10 a.m. at the bridge, located near the intersection of Lakeshore Drive and Hammock Ridge Road.
The $3.1 million construction project took 16 months to complete. It included the replacement of the previous two-lane, five-span bridge, which is traveled by over 13,000 vehicles per day, with a new two-lane, single-span bridge. The project was funded by a grant received through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
During the ceremony, traffic flow may be disrupted, and residents in the area could experience delays.
