TAVARES – The Lake County Public Works Department Road Operations Division is urging motorists to be prepared for road closures, delays and detours beginning April 30 due to the continuing Alfred Street project.
Starting Wednesday, drivers coming into downtown Tavares from Leesburg will be diverted from Alfred Street onto the newly paved Caroline Street.
The Alfred Street closures will be fluid and continue east as roadwork progresses down the corridor. Detour signs will be posted to alert the public of these upcoming traffic shifts. Motorists are asked to use caution while in the area.
Once complete, the Alfred Street project 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 in the downtown area.
