In March 2018, Lake County began the CR 455 Extension Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study which focuses on a proposed extension to CR 455 from Schofield Road to Hartwood Marsh Road, in the southeastern portion of Lake County. This Study area is located partially within the City of Clermont, but the anticipated corridor will be contained in unincorporated Lake County and is approximately 4.7 miles in length.
The purpose of this Study is to create system continuity in the area, to provide a regional link between areas of the county, and to provide additional multimodal options that support economic development goals. As alternatives are identified and evaluated, the Study team will consider this corridor's setting, the area's needs, and public input. The public is invited to share their ideas and concerns throughout the Study and may do so on the Share Your Thoughts page. It is anticipated that this Study will be completed in the fall of 2019.
A Public Alternative Concepts Workshop was anticipated to be held in January 2019. However, due to delays in receiving the approved traffic model from CFX Lake-Orange County Connector PD&E Study, the newly anticipated date for the Workshop will be sometime in April 2019. Once the Study Team receives the approved traffic model, the traffic engineer will need approximately six weeks to modify the base model and calibrate it for the needs of the CR 455 Extension Study. The Study Team will then meet with the County Commissioner to discuss the results of the traffic analysis and alternative corridors. After meeting with the Commissioner, the Study Team will be able to prepare for, and conduct, the Public Alternative Concepts Workshop, which will include the Build and No-Build Alternatives. As with previous meetings, residents and homeowners within the Study Area will receive a notification at least two weeks prior to the Workshop.
Public participation is solicited without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex, religion, disability or family status.
