Motorists to see improvements at Collier Pkwy and Hale Rd

Motorists to see improvements at Collier Pkwy and Hale Rd

LAND O’LAKES—As a result of the extension of Collier Parkway from Collier Parkway to Parkway Boulevard, changes were made to the intersection at Collier Parkway and Hale Road.

Now, instead of three roads intersecting, there is a four-way approach.  Because of this, traffic moving along Hale Road and Collier Parkway are required to stop at Hale Road.  At the time of construction, the traffic was evaluated to determine if a traffic signal was warranted, however in the study, volumes were too low to warrant a signal there.

Pasco County recognized improvements in visibility and signage were needed at this intersection.  The southeast and northeast corners of Collier Parkway and Hale Road were experiencing sight distance problems for drivers moving into the intersection.  Ground cover and tree limbs’ blocking the line of sight at these corners was removed.

Planes, Trains and Automobiles: Traveling safely with your pets

Planes, Trains and Automobiles: Traveling safely with your pets

Hitting the road (or the air) with your pets can make your vacation more fun than ever. But even though you can already feel the sand beneath your toes and taste that Mai Tai, remember that Fido or Fluffy doesn’t know he’s about to take a trip.

First and foremost, determine whether it’s wise to bring Fido along at all. Will he love putting his paws in the sand? Or does the beach allow dogs? Will your cat scratch the hotel furniture to pieces? Sometimes the most pet-friendly option is going it alone and letting your pet stay at a clean, friendly kennel.

Your first trip is to the vet
