In March 2021, the Public Works Department will oversee the removal of asphalt on Weber Street, between Orange Avenue and Magnolia Avenue. Removal of the asphalt will prepare the area for the upcoming Lake Highland Utility Improvement Project.

Please be advised, once the contractor removes the asphalt, the roadway's original brick pavers will be visible and accessible by vehicle. The original brick street’s exposure is temporary and upon completion of the Lake Highland Road Utility Project, the street will be reconstructed and returned to asphalt. 

We expect the contractor to complete this phase of the project in three weeks.

The project will occur on Weber Street, between Orange Avenue and Magnolia Avenue. Please see the area marked in orange.

The Weber Street Asphalt Removal Project will assist in preparing the area for several overlapping projects.

The first phase of work will involve OUC relocating above ground power lines to underground. After OUC’s work, the affected portions of the road will have an asphalt patch. OUC’s work will be followed by a major utility project which will install new water mains and sewer mains for the entire length of Weber Street. The utility contractor will partially restore the street for the final phase of work, the extension of the Orlando Urban Trail down the north side of Weber Street. At the completion of the trail project, Weber Street will be restored as an asphalt roadway. The timing for the various phases of work has not yet been finalized, but should occur between March and November of 2021.

Please visit orlando.gov/lakehighlanddrive for more information.

Project hours are 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. There will be a temporary road closure on Weber Street for through-traffic between Orange Avenue and Magnolia Avenue. Access will be available for constituents who live or work in the immediate area. On-street parking will be temporarily unavailable for the duration of the project. There will be times when an entrance or driveway is temporarily inaccessible as the project progresses. Should the contractor experience unforeseen circumstances, there may be an opportunity for work on weekends. In this instance, weekend hours will resemble regular project hours.

Residential and commercial solid waste, recycling and yard waste will continue as scheduled. Should a missed collection occur, residents may dial 407.246.2314 or use orlando.gov to report a skip. The city's Solid Waste Division will make a second attempt for collection.

Emergency vehicles and first responders will be able to access the area throughout the duration of the project.
