Corridor Planning Study for the US 27 Reliever


Leesburg –The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is holding a public information meeting to gauge support for a proposed north-south corridor to offer commuters an alternative to US 27 in western Lake County. It involves proposed improvements to a local road so it can handle more of the daily traffic between Leesburg and Lady Lake.

 

It’s called the Corridor Planning Study for the US 27 Reliever. According to latest figures, traffic on US 27 between Leesburg and Lady Lake ranges from 21,000 to 41,000 vehicles per day. To relieve this, Rolling Acres Road is under evaluation for extension and improvement, from State Road 44 on the south to US 27 on the north.

 

The meeting is scheduled Wednesday, January 30 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the FDOT Leesburg Operations Center, 1405 Thomas Avenue in Leesburg. Maps, drawings and other information are available, as are FDOT representatives and consultant staff to further explain.

 

Public participation is solicited without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex, religion, disability or family status. Persons who require special accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act or persons who require translation services (free of charge) should contact John Moore, FDOT Project Manager either by regular mail at 133 South Semoran Blvd., Orlando, FL 32807, email john.moore@dot.state.fl.us, or toll-free at (800) 780-7102.
