Commissioners to break ground for South Clermont Connector on April 6

RELEASE DATE: March 29, 2006

TAVARES — The general public and interested media representatives are encouraged to attend a Thursday, April 6, groundbreaking ceremony at 9:30 a.m. for the 2.5-mile South Clermont Connector.

South Lake Connector

County Commissioners will break ground for the $13 million project at the south end of Citrus Tower Boulevard, south of Johns Lake Road. The valuable commuter link will provide a connection between Lakeshore Drive and Citrus Tower Boulevard.

A contract was awarded to DeWitt Excavating of Orlando by the Board of County Commissioners in February. Construction plans include a four-lane paved road with curbs, gutters and bicycle lanes. The contract also includes plans for a retention pond and a privacy wall at Spring Valley Subdivision. This project is believed to be the most expensive transportation project ever for Lake County.

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 expected to start in April and take more than one year to complete.

For more information about the groundbreaking ceremony, call the Lake County Department of Public Works at (352) 253-4900.
