Lake County Hosts Public Hearing About Proposed Round Lake Road Improvements


Lake County is hosting the public hearing for the Round Lake Road Project Development and Environment (PD&E) study as part of the Lake County Board of County Commissioners meeting on May 7.


The recommended Build Alternative would widen the existing Round Lake Road from the Orange/Lake County line to Wolf Branch Road and continue the improvements on a new alignment north of Wolf Branch Road to north of State Road 44. The project length is approximately five miles.

The public hearing will be held as an agenda item as part of the Lake County Board of County Commissioners meeting scheduled on Tuesday, May 7, 2019, at the Lake County Administration Building in the Board Chambers (2nd floor), located at 315 W. Main Street, Tavares. The County Commission meeting will begin at 10 a.m. with the public hearing to be held after that time as determined by the Board meeting agenda. This hearing will provide residents an opportunity to voice their comments concerning the social, economic, and environmental impacts of the proposed Round Lake Road improvements.
