Minto Begins Promised Improvements to Seminole Pratt Whitney Road in Westlake, FL

Mike Belmont
WESTLAKE, FL – Minto Communities announced that construction has begun on improvements to Seminole Pratt Whitney Road through the newly formed City of Westlake.

 The improvements consist of major utility infrastructure installation, placing the overhead power underground, as well as widening a 1.5-mile stretch of the roadway. 

The project will also include the installation of a rural parkway landscape buffer.  Minto agreed to this significant infrastructure project as part of its development order for Westlake, a 3,800-acre master-planned community. 

While Minto is funding and paying the approximately $19-million cost, the project will be constructed jointly by Minto and the Seminole Improvement District.

Plans call for expanding the two-lane road to four lanes with a landscaped divided median. Widening will occur from the northern end of Seminole Ridge High School to just past 60th Street North. In addition, there will be an 80-foot landscaped buffer and sidewalks constructed in the dedicated Rural Parkway Easement.

“The District has executed all contract documents and the road contractor has been issued a notice to proceed. Mobilization efforts and pre-construction efforts are well underway,” said Mike Belmont, president of Minto Communities.

“As part of our development order with Palm Beach County, we agreed to step up and commence construction on this substantial improvement to Seminole Pratt Whitney before putting a shovel in the ground for our new community,” said John Carter, vice president of Minto Communities. “We are pleased to see this major transportation improvement project starting.”
