The City of Orlando’s Water Reclamation Division will be lining sanitary sewer pipes along Ivanhoe Boulevard beginning August 30, 2018 and lasting approximately 2 months. This will rehabilitate old pipes to improve the efficiency and functionality of the sanitary sewer system. In Fall, 2018, the City’s Streets and Stormwater Division will begin a 6-phased project to improve stormwater drainage throughout this same neighborhood; overall reducing flooding in the area. Phase 1 of the drainage improvement project will last approximately one year. All 6 phases are expected to take 5-7 years to reach completion. As phases of work are completed, the brick roads impacted by the infrastructure upgrades will be rehabilitated.
PROJECT UPDATE: IVANHOE IMPROVEMENTS PHASE ONE
The City of Orlando’s Public Works Department will begin phase one of our Ivanhoe Improvement Project starting October 8, 2018. The project area is located between Gerda Terrace and North Shores Terrace along Ivanhoe Blvd. The project hours are between 7:00 am – 3:30 pm Monday through Friday. Some weekend work may be necessary. Phase one of this project will take approximately one year. This project will enhance the stormwater system along Ivanhoe Blvd improving functionality and efficiency to help reduce flooding in the general area.
During the project, portions of Lake Ivanhoe Park will be unavailable. We recommend you use Gaston Edwards Park as an alternative.
