MINNEOLA — As part of the North Hancock Road Extension Project, a portion of the South Lake Trail from Turkey Farm Road to Old Highway 50 will be closed to trail users from Wednesday, Jan. 20 through Friday, Jan. 29.
The trail closure is needed to accommodate the next phase of construction of the North Hancock Road Extension in the Clermont/Minneola area. With scheduled completion in March 2016, the project will provide a major transportation corridor connecting to the new Minneola Interchange on the Florida Turnpike.
Variable message board signs will be posted alerting residents of the closures. Motorists, cyclists and pedestrians are asked to use caution in the area.
For more information regarding the trail closure or road work, contact the Lake County Public Works Department at 352-253-6007.
