The trail will be shut down in phases (such as from Mohawk Road to Forestwood Drive) to minimize impacts to trail users. Work will be done Monday – Friday only, and trail segments in unincorporated Lake County and the city of Clermont will not be affected.
Once the trail work is completed, the parking lot at Minneola Trailhead Park will be repaved and the connection trail between the parking lot and the South Lake Trail will be resurfaced. Trailhead Park will remain open during the construction, and grass parking will be available.
This project, which is partially grant funded, will also include new benches and trash cans, intersection lighting, trail signage and landscaping improvements.
