MINNEOLA — The Lake County Department of Public Works is holding a public meeting on Thursday, Nov. 15, beginning at 6 p.m. at Minneola City Hall, located at 800 N. U.S. Highway 27, to discuss proposed improvements to Cherry Lake, Jalarmy and East Apshawa roads.
The Department of Public Works has contracted with T.Y. Lin International to provide engineering services for evaluating improvements to the 8-mile stretch of Cherry Lake and East Apshawa roads from State Road 19 to U.S. Highway 27 and Jalarmy Road from Minneola Drive to Cherry Lake Road. The study is evaluating a range of alternatives to improve Cherry Lake, Jalarmy and East Apshawa roads, which currently have two travel lanes with unpaved shoulders. Some of the alternatives include adding paved shoulders to constructing additional lanes where needed for increased capacity or to provide protection for turning vehicles.
The project schedule for these proposed roadway improvements includes an initial study to confirm the appropriate typical roadway sections for these roads before proceeding to final design for the recommended improvements. During the study, several public meetings will be conducted to inform the residents and adjacent property owners about the alternatives being considered and to listen to their input.
For more information about the public meeting or proposed roadway improvements, call Tom McCann, an engineer with the Department of Public Works, at (352) 483-9044 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Or contact Fraser Howe Jr., PE, with T.Y. Lin International at 407-563-7104 or e-mail email@example.com.
