Progress hits the halfway mark for Lake County’s $13M project

RELEASE DATE: December 22, 2006

CLERMONT — Officials of the Lake County Department of Public Works are encouraged by the progress made on the County’s newest road construction project, the South Clermont Connector.

South Lake Connector
As of this month, the $13-million project was halfway complete. To date, the contractor had completed the placement of 2.5 inches of asphalt along one half of the 2.5-mile road. Remaining portions of the project include construction of an additional sidewalk, a privacy wall and intersections with other roads.

“A substantial amount of construction has occurred basically in the middle of the project,” said Lori Conway, Director of the Lake County Department of Public Works, Funding & Production Division. “Major portions that remain are the connections with Lake Louisa Drive and U.S. Highway 27.”

When completed in summer 2007, the four-lane, divided boulevard will provide a valuable commuter link between Lakeshore Drive and Citrus Tower Boulevard. The connection on Lakeshore Drive will be made just west of the Lake Louisa Road intersection, near Lake Minnehaha. The tie into Citrus Tower Boulevard will be just east of U.S. Highway 27.

The project is believed to be the most expensive transportation project ever for Lake County. For more information about the South Clermont Connector, call the Lake County Department of Public Works at (352) 483-9000.
