Orlando Urban Trail Gap
The Orlando Urban Trail Gap Project will complete a 0.3-mile segment from the Colonial Drive Overpass to Magnolia Avenue and Weber Street. The project will be located on the west side of Orange Avenue and north side of Weber Street, and will include the installation of a new traffic signal at the intersection of Weber Street and Magnolia Avenue.
This gap is a critical connection between Gertrude’s Walk and the Dinky Line portion of the Orlando Urban Trail, which combined average over 30,000 trips per month. This project will better connect Mills 50, Ivanhoe Village and the North Quarter with Downtown Orlando and include a direct connection to LYNX Central Station and SunRail.
As part of this project the city will also be constructing a southern extension to the Orlando Urban Trail. The 10-foot wide multi-use trail will start just south of Gore Street on the east side of Division Avenue, extending south to Michigan Street, and include a trail spur on the south side of Columbia Street from Division Avenue to Sligh Boulevard. This project will provide additional connectivity to the Orlando Health / Amtrak SunRail Station and SODO District.
Funding for this project includes a grant from the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT).
