TAVARES – With the construction of the roundabout at the intersection of Main Street and Sinclair Avenue in downtown Tavares now complete, the Lake County Public Transportation Division will immediately resume use of its two LakeXpress bus stops on Main Street along Route 1 near the Lake County Administration Building, located at 315 W. Main St. in Tavares.
Residents traveling eastbound toward Eustis or westbound toward Leesburg can now wait at the bus shelter in front of the Lake County Administration Building.
In addition, passengers are still permitted to use flag stops along the routes, and the LakeXpress driver will allow them to board the bus in a safe location.
Construction on the roundabout began in August, and was part of the downtown revitalization initiative, and will help alleviate congestion at the intersection, enabling a smoother flow of traffic.
