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.
