Once on the Orlando Walks page, click on “Proposed Sidewalks by District” and then you can click on “District 4”.
This will open a small map that you will need to magnify (using the the magnifying glass with the “plus sign” in it) quite a few times to be able to read it well.
Please note that District 4 is in green on this map. New sections of sidewalks are in red (existing sidewalks are in dark green) and once you’ve magnified the map large enough, you can tell which side of the street that sidewalk will be installed on.
Southeast Lakes Drainage Improvements
The Southeast Lakes Drainage Improvement Project will enhance the stormwater system in the Lake Cherokee and Delaney Park neighborhoods. These enhancements will reduce flooding during heavy rainfalls by quickly diverting the stormwater runoff from the street surface.
The project involves installing new stormwater piping, removal and replacement of existing sanitary sewer and potable water lines, and brick and asphalt pavement reconstruction on portions of the following streets: Florida Street, Delaney Park Drive, Cherokee Circle, Woodlawn Boulevard and South Summerlin Avenue. These roads will be temporarily closed at times from June 2015 through May 2016. The total project duration will be approximately 12 months.

Update on the Bumby Avenue Drainage and Roadway Construction Project.
June 17, 2015 Update:
Keeping people safe continues to be the City’s number one priority. The maintenance of traffic (MOT) plan for the Bumby Road Improvement Project has traffic being detoured from accessing Bumby Avenue from Illinois Street. Unfortunately, vehicle traffic is not following the posted detour routes and traveling through the work zone causing a serious safety hazard for motorist and workers.
Therefore, effective June 18th, the intersection of Bumby Avenue and Illinois Street will be closed during the duration of the construction. Vehicle traffic will not be able to access Bumby Avenue from Illinois Street. The City has asked the contractor to ensure that all residents can still access their driveways and provide residents direction until everyone is familiar with the change.
Thank you for sharing this information and encouraging everyone to follow the posted detour signs. As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or the construction manager Peter Holzer at firstname.lastname@example.org
April 2, 2015 Update: Informational “Road to be Closed” signs will go up the week of April 6, 2015.
The road is currently scheduled to be closed the week of April 20, 2015.
Original Update: This project was opened for bids during the 4th Quarter of 2014, unfortunately no contractor bids were submitted, so now the City is opening the rebid process for this project on or before the end of January 2015. If there is a successful bid, hopefully it can go before the City Council Meeting in late February or early March. If all of that happens on those dates, work could start within a few weeks of City Council approval. The City would therefore anticipate starting construction in late Spring (or early Summer) 2015.
