TAVARES — The Lake County Public Works Department announced today that Alfred Street, from State Road 19 to Sinclair Avenue, will remain closed throughout the Christmas and New Year’s holidays as work continues on the downtown Tavares road realignment project.
The project, once complete, will establish one-way directional traffic between State Road 19 and Disston Avenue. The city of Tavares is also currently overseeing a utility project to replace water and sewer lines within the downtown area.
Motorists traveling from Leesburg who are intending to visit the downtown government complex are advised to turn southbound on N. Sinclair Avenue from U.S. Highway 441 in Tavares. Those travelling from downtown Tavares towards Leesburg are advised to travel west on W. Main Street, turn northbound on State Road 19/N. Duncan Drive, then turn westbound onto Lakeshore Boulevard to access U.S. Highway 441.
Access to the Lake County Probation Office, 518 W. Alfred St., Tavares, will be available from Sinclair Avenue, with directional signs in place to assist motorists.
