The Orlando Urban Trail

Bikers using the Orlando Urban Trail

The city's Public Works Department and Transportation Department will oversee the construction of the Orlando Urban Trail. Funding for this project includes a grant from the Florida Department of Transportation - (FDOT).

Once complete, the urban trail will provide city residents with enjoyable pathways for commuters and recreational riders to travel through the city.

We expect to complete this phase of work in Spring 2022. Please be advised adverse weather and unforeseen conditions may create delays that may prolong the project. 

We anticipate the city's competitive bid contractor will begin constructing the trail starting at the south end.

The project area is on the east side of S. Division Avenue, between Gore Street and Michigan Street. Once the project starts, the contractor will construct a 10-foot wide multi-use trail within the public right-of-way.

Upon completion, city residents may notice increased connectivity to Orlando Regional Medical Center, Amtrak - SunRail Station, and SODO District.

Once the project starts, businesses on S. Division Avenue will notice the city's contractor working within the public right-of-way. 

Project hours are 7:30 am to 5:30 pm Monday through Friday. The contractor may have the option to work on weekend.

There may be times when an entrance or driveway to a business is impacted temporarily during construction. Should this occur, the contractor will coordinate with the business to maintain access to the area.

There will be restrictions for parking vehicles, storing equipment and dumpsters within the public right-of-way for the project's duration. It is highly unlikely, the storage of vehicles, equipment and dumpsters can go back to their original location once the project is complete due to the new urban trail.

Please prepare for detours, lane closures and lane shift as crews, equipment and vehicles will be present.

In November or December 2021, the city's competitive bid contractor will continue the urban trail on N. Orange Avenue. The project area is between the north end of the Pedestrian Bridge to Weber Street.

Once construction begins, the urban trail will continue from the completed SR-50 Pedestrian Bridge behind the Steelhouse Orlando to Weber Street, eventually connecting to the urban trail extension near Alden Rd and Lake Highland. 

A new 10-foot multi-use-trail will be built on the west side of N. Orange Avenue. Once at Marks Street, the project will switch to the east side of the N. Orange, and the contractor will continue creating a new multi-use-trail to Weber Street.

Please be advised, during the construction of the urban trail on N. Orange Avenue, the Orlando Utilities Commission - (OUC) will use this opportunity to replace a 100-year-old water main and potable water system.

Completing the project will provide commuters and recreational riders with an enjoyable and convenient way to get around the city.

Once the project begins, the city's contractor will construct a new multi-use trail on the west side of N. Orange Avenue and later on the east side of N. Orange Avenue once past Marks Street. 

Project Hours are 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Friday. The contractor will have the option to work on weekends, and the project hours will reflect regular project hours.

Resident and pedestrians will experience temporary pedestrian detours and sidewalk closures for the duration of the project. N Orange Avenue will be reduced from three lanes to two lanes. Commuters may experience increase in commute times, detours, lane closures, and lane shifts.

There may be times when a driveway or entrance is impacted temporarily as the project progresses. Should this occur, the contractor will coordinate with residential complexes and businesses to help maintain access to the area.

Residents may experience an increase in noise during the project. Orlando Utilities Commission - (OUC) plans to remove and replace a 100-year-old water main and potable water system. We do not expect a service interruption of potable water service during the project. However, there may be times when potable water service is intermittently interrupted for pressure testing and chlorination only when the new utility is installed and brought online.
