Last updated on September 27, 2021

This phase is now complete.

---

The median will be closed at the intersection of Narcoossee Road and Lake Nona Club Drive and Nonacrest Drive from 9 p.m. Friday, September 24 to no later than 6 a.m. Monday, September 27. 

Weather or other unforeseen circumstances could impact this schedule.  

During the closure drivers will not be able to turn left from northbound Narcoossee Road onto Lake Nona Club Drive or turn left from southbound Narcoossee Road onto Nonacrest drive. Drivers will be directed to continue north or south on Narcoossee Road and make a U-turn to reach these streets. Drivers leaving Nonacrest Drive or Lake Nona Club Drive will not be able to make a left turn on to Narcoossee Road. 

The lane closures are necessary to install 30-inch reclaimed pipe as part of the City of Orlando’s project to widen Narcoossee Road to six lanes between the Central Florida Greenway (State Road (S.R. 417) and the Beachline Expressway (S.R. 528).

 

Project Update: 

Work crews are scheduled to close the median on Narcoossee Road at Falcon Parc Boulevard for about two weeks to install underground utility pipes. Southbound Narcoossee Road traffic will not be able to turn onto Falcon Parc Boulevard.

The median is scheduled to close Friday, September 17 and work is expected to take up to two weeks to complete. Weather or other unforeseen circumstances could impact this schedule.

Drivers will be directed to use Moss Park Road or other entrances to access the Cornerstone at Lake Hart shopping center and Retreat at Lake Nona community.  This work is part of the City of Orlando’s project to widen Narcoossee Road to six lanes between the Central Florida Greenway (State Road (S.R.) 417 and the Beachline Expressway (S.R. 528).

The project will begin with construction of the multi-use, 8 to 13-foot-wide trail which starts at Lake Nona Boulevard and runs along the west side of Narcoossee Road to just north of Lake Nona Club Drive. The trail will feature benches and a bicycle repair station with air for tires. Improvements to signalization will take place during the multi-use trail construction. Shoulder closures will be required for this work which is expected to take about ten months to complete.

Once the trail is built, work will begin on the new lanes and the utility improvements. Additional left-turn and right-turn lanes will be added at Moss Park and Dowden Road. A new directional median opening will be added at Falcon Parc Boulevard. 

Once the project begins, residents will notice crews and equipment working in the median.  During this project, there will be an increase in noise during project hours. Two lanes in each direction will be maintained between 5 a.m and 10 p.m. Lane closure will be restricted during overnight hours. There is the possibility of weekend and overnight work throughout the project.

Unforeseen circumstance and adverse weather can increase the project's duration. 

Residents traveling through the project area may experience momentary delays that will increase commute times. 

The City is also proposing a six-foot to eight-foot decorative wall to be constructed along the existing chain-link fence at Lake Nona Golf and Country Club. The wall length would be approximately 4,800 feet. The wall will be built by Tavistock - Lake Nona as part of a separate project.

The wall will consist of concrete with a stucco finish and display ficus vines. 

Supplemental landscaping will be used to help enhance the aesthetics of the multi-use-trial and neighborhood security.

The proposed landscaping within the median along Narcooseee Road will consist of Crape Myrtles and Sabal Palms.

Additional landscaping throughout the project area includes:

  • Ficus Vines
  • Live Oaks
  • Native Shrubs
  • Pines
  • Cedar

Landscaping will also be used for the multi-use-trail and decorative wall impacted slope areas.
