Edgewood Drive Extension now open

Lakeland, Florida - The much anticipated Edgewood Drive Extension that connects South Florida Avenue to Harden Boulevard officially opened Friday Morning.

Construction of the Edgewood Drive extension started January 1, 2012 and it  opened ahead of schedule.

The east/west connector has been in the works since 2001 when the City of Lakeland had its first initial workshop on possible routes.

The total cost for the project was $19.2 million with funding coming from Polk County, the Federal Highway Administration, City of Lakeland impact fees and City of Lakeland bond revenues.

The Edgewood Drive extension is expected to experience over 16,000 cars per day.
