Alfred Street and Disston Avenue intersection to close July 16

RELEASE DATE: July 10, 2014

TAVARES – As part of continuing roadwork surrounding the Alfred Street project in downtown Tavares, the intersection of Alfred Street and Disston Avenue will be closed to through traffic beginning July 16. Alfred Street from Caroline Street to Disston Avenue will remain closed, while Alfred Street from Disston Avenue to Dora Avenue will be open to local traffic only. 

Drivers will continue to be able to access the Lake County Government Complex parking garage entrance on Sinclair Avenue via Main Street or Caroline Street.

Drivers coming into downtown Tavares from Leesburg will be diverted from Alfred Street onto the newly paved Caroline Street. Drivers coming into downtown Tavares from Mount Dora should use Dora Avenue to access Main Street. 

Detour signs will be posted to alert the public and motorists are asked to use caution. Periodic closures should be expected as roadwork continues 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.

For more information about the project, contact the Lake County Public Works Department Road Operations Division at 352-483-9007.
