Roadwork resumes on the SR 56 extension in Wesley Chapel!

I couldn't believe it.  I thought I was seeing a mirage when I saw this dump truck at SR 56 and Mansfield Blvd. this morning.  A Pasco County official confirmed that work has FINALLY resumed on the SR 56 extension to Meadow Pointe Blvd.  Work on the extension was halted in February of this year.  The final 1 inch layer of asphalt will be put down, striping done, and the construction barrels removed for an opening in 20-25 work days.  Also, the traffic lights at Mansfield and Meadow Pointe Blvd. are a separate project and their installation is not required to open the extension to Meadow Pointe Blvd.  Pasco County engineering is projecting a late July opening (weather permitting).  So, once again we have a date.

You're welcome! It's too bad that the newspapers don't provide the local coverage that they once did.

Laying the final layer of asphalt usually doesn't take long! Thanks for the update.

The Neighborhood News had a story on this last month, but I agree that the daily papers don't give New Tampa/Wesley Chapel much coverage these days...
