South Lake Trail users are urged to exercise caution while boardwalk repairs are underway
Release Date: March 24, 2016
MINNEOLA — The South Lake Trail’s boardwalk section, along County Road 455 between State Road 50 and Old Highway 50, will be closed weekdays between 7:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. from Monday, April 4 through Friday, April 22 while repairs are made.
The 470-foot-long boardwalk allows trail users to traverse over a wetland area. However, during construction to replace damaged boards, cyclists, runners and walkers would need to either detour into the roadway where there is no bike lane, or turn around at the point of closure to remain on the trail.
Trail users should either avoid the boardwalk area altogether while construction is taking place, or proceed with extreme caution.
For details about the repairs, contact Lake County Parks & Trails at 352-253-4950.
