It's open! (SR 56 extension)

After an "Inaugural Walk - Run" and ribbon cutting ceremony, the S.R. 56 extension to Meadow Pointe Blvd. in Wesley Chapel finally was opened today after years of delay after delay.  Considering the ridiculous length of time it has taken to design and build this 3.0 +/- mile extension from BBD, we probably should have had the Governor and the U.S. Marine Band there for the ceremony too.  (Well, at least Jersey Shore Snooki!)

Gone are the "Do Not Enter" and "No Trespassing" signs. Not gone--Pasco County deputies who seem to favor patrolling SR 56 and Mansfield Blvd.

TRAFFIC PATTERN CHANGE:  Northbound traffic on Mansfield Boulevard must now STOP at SR 56 before turning east or west onto the highway.  Additionally, there are stop signs at the Meadow Pointe Blvd. and SR 56 intersection.

What's next?  Look for the installation of traffic lights at Mansfield and Meadow Pointe Blvd. and additional work on the SR 56 and BBD intersection.
