Q: What if is there an emergency during this project and I need the assistance of first responders?
Public Works will coordinate with Orlando Police Department and Orlando Fire Department prior to project start. Should an emergency occur, first responders and emergency vehicles will have priority access.
Q: How many (ARVs) will be rehabilitated or replaced during this project?
There are 24 locations citywide scheduled for rehabilitation or replacement. All work will occur in the City’s public right-of-way. A few locations will have work in the roadway to replace small sections of piping.
Q: How will I know if I live near an (ARV) and if I will notice construction during this project?
Constituents living near an ARV scheduled for rehabilitation or replacement will receive a residential brochure in the mail. Impacted neighborhoods will also receive notification and future communication about the project on the social media platform Nextdoor.
Q: How long will this project take?
We expect the contractor to complete the project citywide in one year and three months. Each individual ARV location may take anywhere 15 days to complete scheduled work. Please know, unforeseen circumstances or adverse weather can create delays or increase the project’s duration.
Q: Will the contractor work on nights or weekends?
Yes. To increase productivity and reduce the direct impact on residents and businesses there will be opportunities for extended project hours and occasional weekend work. Of course, unforeseen circumstances can increase the necessity for weekend and overnight work.
Q: Will my sanitary sewer service be interrupted during this project?
No. We do not plan or anticipate an interruption in sanitary sewer service. Residents and businesses can continue their daily routine as usual.
Q: Are road detours or signal flaggers necessary while the contractor is working?
Yes. In a few select locations, small sections of piping need replacement which will require work in the roadway. Impacted areas will receive advance notification prior to project start. We ask residents to please adhere to posted vehicle and pedestrian detour and traffic signs. Please use caution when navigating project areas as crews and equipment will be present.
Q: Will there be an interruption in solid waste, recycling, mail or other services?
No. Solid waste, recycling, mail and other services will continue as scheduled. Public Works will coordinate with service providers as needed to ensure access to neighborhoods.
