Groundbreaking ceremony scheduled
for Leesburg’s Pine Street road project
LEESBURG, FL – Construction will soon begin on Leesburg’s Pine Street Roadway Improvements Project. The official groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for 10:00 a.m., Wednesday, April 12, on the project site at 312 Pine Street, Leesburg.
The $2.9 million project will widen the roadway between Canal Street and Childs Street to accommodate designated on-street parking as well as provide traffic calming by adding curvature to the street. Additional improvements include widening of sidewalks, improved landscaping, decorative lighting and off-street parking.
“This project is an important piece of the City’s revitalization efforts,” said City Manager Al Minner. “It invests in a portion of our community which has been overlooked for many years and provides an extension of the downtown, which further enhances the H.O. Dabney Aquatic Center.”
The roadway and parking improvements were designed by CPH and will be built by Wharton-Smith, Inc. Construction Group. Both firms are located in Sanford, Florida.
The public is invited to attend the ceremony. For more information, call the Public Works Department at 352-435-9442.
