Extension of S.R. 56 on hold

WESLEY CHAPEL - Under the original plans, State Road 56 was supposed to have opened to Mansfield Boulevard by March.

That deadline quietly slipped to May and now has moved to June, a bet hedged with the possibility the road may open before it's completely finished.

Officials from Pasco County and the state Department of Transportation lay the latest delay at the feet of TECO, which has yet to move power lines along the unopened stretch of S.R. 56 between Mansfield and Bruce B. Downs Boulevard. Until those lines move, the road builders can't add the road's final eastbound lane.


Wow..we keep waiting. When I bought a house in meadow Point (and sold it the same year, lucky me ) , I was told the road would be ready that same year, but we always thought "see it, before we believe it"...that was 2005...4 years ago!
