Update on the Extension of S.R. 56 in Wesley Chapel, FL
Meadow Pointe residents will be happy to hear that the extension of S.R. 56 will be six lanes wide and then narrow to four lanes shortly after the Shops at Wiregrass Mall. Additionally, the widening of Bruce B. Downs will include six lanes north of S.R. 56 and 8 lanes South of S.R. 56 in Pasco County. The St. Pete Times describes the future intersection of S.R. 56 and Bruce B. Downs as "the largest intersection in the district, with triple left turn lanes." Construction on the extension of S.R. 56 is to start this month according to Pasco County administrator, John Gallagher.
