Capitola Farm Road in South Hall to be partially closed for 90 days
Capitola Farm Road, shown here starting at Lemon Grass Lane, will be closed between Lake Sterling Boulevard and Lemon Grass Lane for 90 days starting in about two weeks.

A key traffic artery between two major South Hall roads and cutting through a major subdivision will be partially closed 90 days, starting within a couple of weeks, for improvements.

Newland Communities, developer of the sprawling Sterling on the Lake subdivision, is “performing infrastructure improvements as required by the state and federal permitting to Capitola Farm Road,” according to a notice sent Friday to Sterling residents.

Capitola Farm, which runs between Spout Springs and Hog Mountain roads, will be closed between Lake Sterling Boulevard and Lemon Grass Lane.

The 1,000-acre neighborhood, which has about 900 homes now but is approved for 2,000, is performing the work “as part of the current phase of development,” according to the notice.

“As part of the work, the lakes next to Capitola Farm Road are being drained and will remain drained until work is complete,” the notice states.

Both of the Sterling on the Lake entrances off Capitola Farm will remain open throughout construction, the notice states.

Sterling is opening a new 115-home section in early summer and is about to start construction on a section featuring 1-acre home sites off Capitola Farm Road, Jennifer Landers, a Newland vice president, has said.

In early March, Sterling held a grand opening of the community’s fifth decorated model home, built by Harcrest Homes.

“We’re looking forward to the new options in floor plans and interior features that they will bring to our buyers,” Landers said.
