Lake County Hosts Preferred Alternative Public Meeting about Proposed County Road 455 Improvements


Lake County is hosting the Preferred Alternative Public Meeting for the County Road 455 Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 24 in the Clermont Room at the Clermont Arts and Recreation Center, located at 3700 S. Highway 27 in Clermont.


The purpose of this study is to develop and evaluate proposed transportation solutions on new alignment from Schofield Road to Hartwood Marsh Road in southeast Lake County. The project is approximately 4.7 miles in length.

The open-house style public meeting will present the preferred transportation improvement concept. This workshop will provide residents with an opportunity to express their views concerning the social, economic, and environmental impacts of the proposed CR 455 improvements. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and to offer input to the study team. There will be no formal presentation, however an informational video will run continuously throughout the evening. Additional information is available online, and the meeting displays and video will be posted at within a week after the meeting.
