Beginning on September 11, 2023, the City of Orlando Public Works Department will begin their sanitary sewer project along N Orange Avenue in Ivanhoe Village. Businesses and residents will need to be prepared for traffic changes. Remember to support your local businesses!
From Public Works Department:
“On September 11, 2023, the City of Orlando’s Public Works Department will begin phase 1 of the
construction to replace sanitary sewer lines on North Orange Avenue, between Ivanhoe Boulevard and
Alden Road. The project to replace the undersized and aged pipeline with new infrastructure will be broken into
five phases over 13 months.
The project has the potential to temporarily disrupt entrance or egress to businesses on Orange Avenue, Virginia Drive, and the multifamily residential complex The Yard at Ivanhoe. Phase 1 is expected to take 60 days. During this time, the project
will require a full intersection closure at Orange Avenue and Ivanhoe Boulevard. This is the only phase where traffic will be detoured off Orange Avenue. However, businesses and residents directly impacted by the project will maintain access to their property. Once the contractor begins the project, there will be temporary on-street parking restrictions where work occurs. Public Works will work with code enforcement and the Orlando Police Department to maintain a safe working environment. Should a vehicle block or obstruct construction, the contractor may choose to relocate a vehicle. Residents, pedestrians, or commuters may encounter road closures, detours, or signal flaggers within the project area. There is a high probability of noise once the project begins.
Working hours are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. The contractor may elect to work on
Saturdays to maintain the project schedule. Saturday working hours will resemble weekday hours.
Working on Saturday may become necessary due to unforeseen circumstances or adverse weather.”
