Motorists notified of traffic shift changes during Phase 2 of North Hancock Road construction work

RELEASE DATE: November 4, 2015

MINNEOLA — The Lake County Public Works Department is alerting motorists to a major traffic shift beginning Monday, Nov. 9 and lasting through February 2016 on North Hancock Road that will affect motorists traveling to and from Lake Minneola High School and Grassy Lake Elementary School. 

The project is part of the North Hancock Road Extension, which will provide a major transportation corridor connecting to the new Minneola Interchange of Florida’s Turnpike. 

As construction enters into Phase 2 next week, the new northbound lanes of North Hancock Road will be used for both north and southbound traffic. Additionally, as part of this shift, Old Highway 50 West will be realigned. A traffic signal will also be added at the new intersection of North Hancock Road and Old Highway 50 West. 

During this phase, traffic issues are expected to ease with improved traffic flow, and children will be able to use a 12-foot, multi-use trail connecting to sidewalks from East Highway 50 to Lake Minneola High School and sidewalks to Grassy Lake Elementary School.

Motorists are asked to exercise caution in the area and allow extra travel time through this area due to the new traffic pattern. Detour signs will be posted to alert the public to these changes. 

For more information regarding the road work, contact the Lake County Public Works Department at 352-253-6007.
