Default Inquiring minds want to know...

As I drive by Rolling Acres on 446A, I cannot tell if they will bring Rolling Acres Road across 466A at that intersection.

I recall an announcement that a Traffic Light would be placed there, which is sorely needed, but I'm just curious about the possibility of a road into The Villages new Fruitland Park section from that intersection.

Does anyone know? Maybe it was announced and I was just out of the loop.

Thanks!

There are no plans to extend Rolling Acres Rd down to 466A.

The stop light you refer to will be installed at 466A and Micro Racetrack Rd.

I am sure she meant Micro Racetrack.

Yep, I meant Micro Race Track road. Sorry for the confusion. That is where the traffic light is going to be placed, right? At the intersection of 446A and Micro RaceTrack Rd.

I am just wondering if Micro Race Track Rd will cross 466A and go into the new section of The Villages of Fruitland Park. They have done some landscaping with trees lining what could be a road crossing into The Villages at that point.

It looks like there will be an entrance there. Knowing TV, it will have a different street name.

That was my guess. I didn't know if anyone knew for sure or if it had been announced.

I don't think there will be an entrance to that new subdivision at Micro Race Track road based on what the landscaping looks like. I think it is going to be further east and it is at that intersection there will be a new road going North to intersect Rolling Acres that will carry the traffic straight thru to 466. Time will tell!

The word is that there will not be an entrance at the Micro Racetrack traffic light.
The main entrance into the Fruitland Park Villages supposedly, will be east of Micro Racetrack Rd.

How do you know this, about there being a road parallel to Micro Race Track that will connect the entrance to Fruitland Park Villages to Rolling Acres? I never thought of that, and wondered why they put the TV entrance east of Micro Race Track. Initially they said there would be a light at Micro Race Track.

If there's no light at Micro, and no road to Rolling Acres from the TV entrance, there could be traffic jams at both places.

Here's a scan of the 2015 TV Street Map (a.k.a. The $5 Map). This map appears to show the "major" streets in TV of Fruitland Park.

It shows two traffic lights - one at Micro Racetrack Rd (no Villages access shown) and one at the eastern access for a street named Drake Dr.

All,

I spent a couple of hours looking for a map I knew I had seen before, finally found it.
I have attached a copy of the map, and according to it, Micro Racetrack Road will not extend into the new Fruitland Park area of TV.
Hope this helps with the discussions.
