Definitely a possibility and mentioned in the article, it should be important enough to justify it.

Five years??

Its a county road, Lake county would be funding it, not Fruitland Park.

Thank goodness Morse Blvd to 44 is done. At least if you live over by the Fruitland Park side of TV and your destination is Leesburg or south then 466A can be avoided without going all the way to Buena Vista.

Fruitland Park officials have been working to get the funding. This story is from April 2014: City campaign urged to fund CR 466A improvements - Daily Commercial: News

This story, from the online news source that won't post on this site, is from December 2013: Byline Meta Minton: The widening of County Road 466A from the Sumter County Line to U.S. 27/441 is one step closer to reality.
As The Villages prepares to build along County Road 466A in Fruitland Park and carry heavier traffic than ever before.
The Lake County Commissioners has approved a Transportation Regional Incentive Program (TRIP) agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation for right-of-way funding related to the County Road 466A widening project. The project is proposed to construct a four-lane divided urban roadway, which begins at U.S. Highway 27 and runs west to the Lake/Sumter County Line in Fruitland Park.
The road will have sidewalks, bicycle lanes and a divided median. This TRIP agreement will fund right-of-way purchases for two of the three phased construction segments of County Road 466A. The two phases to be funded with the TRIP funds under this agreement are Phase I from U.S. Highway 27 west to Sunny Court (0.43 miles) and Phase II from Marguerite Drive west to the Lake/Sumter County line (1.81 miles).
Phase III from Sunny Court west to Marguerite Drive remains unfunded at this time (0.81 miles). FDOT is providing $4.354 million in TRIP funding. Lake County is providing the required 50 percent match of $4,354 million from previously expended and budgeted funds.

Anyone living close to the Fruitland Park area wouldn't go west to Morse then east on 44 to go to Leesburg. They would go east on 466A, then south one of a few different ways. Taking 44 might also take someone too far south in Leesburg.

My intent of my post was that IF 466A is shut down during construction like the Wildwood section of 466A.

The section of Fruitland Park that will be in The Villages will have access when homes are built but those living in the "0lder" current section of Fruitland Park will not have golf cart access to TV.

There really isn't much in FP to need golf cart access. There is way more going on in TV, I think traffic to FP will be more THROUGH FP and most of it people to and from work in TV.

Absolutely right. And that was why the developer quickly built the "wall" and then the gate with no access from outside in the historic area. So as to not create a precedent when negotiating with Fruitland Park. It was very wise , but at the time we had much discussion and even public outcry.

I am tellin' you, those Morses are a smart bunch. They think things through and give us lovely stuff. Go Free ENTERPRISE.
