I-75 Has LWR Signage

Representative Ron Reagan (R-67th) has worked with the Florida Department of Transportation to secure signage for Lakewood Ranch on Interstate-75.

Two signs are now placed on the Southbound side before State Road 70 and on the Northbound side before University Parkway. Both say “Lakewood Ranch Next Two Exits.” There will also be an arrow at the University Parkway exit directing drivers to Lakewood Ranch.

“I’m pleased to have been able to advance this initiative,” states Reagan. “As Florida continues to enjoy record popularity as a tourist destination and desirable place to relocate, we need to direct motorists who are not familiar with our community safely to their destinations.”

Lakewood Ranch residents have frequently requested interstate signage. The master-planned community is now home to more than 10,000 people. Plus, there are more than 8,000 employees in Lakewood Ranch-based businesses. There are also thousands of people visiting the area to patronize the shops, hotels, restaurants and golf courses.

“This is an important step in further establishing our identity as a new community in the state,” notes Schroeder-Manatee Ranch, Inc. President and CEO Rex Jensen. “With the recent announcement of a US Post Office in the works, we are well on our way.”
