- Windhover Drive Closure – The current phase of work requires a closure of Windhover Drive just east of Peregrine Avenue. This closure is expected to remain in place through June.
- Weekend and Night Work, June 1 – June 3 – Peregrine Avenue at Vineland Road will be closed beginning at 7 P.M. on June 1st, and will last through 7 A.M. June 4th. Crews will be working constantly throughout this period of time, including overnight hours.
- Tree Removal Note: The City contractor has determined that Orange County water lines were not located per the as-built drawings provided to the City and need to be relocated. Therefore, the construction and pipe installation in this area will impact several trees in the median between Frontage Road and Vineland Road. The City’s Forestry Division has assessed the impact this additional work will have to these trees and has determined that construction will lead to extensive damage to the tree root systems, resulting in unstable and unsafe trees. It is with their professional recommendation that the City will be removing 5 Live Oaks and 12 Magnolia trees in the barrier between Frontage Road and Vineland Road, west of Cheryl Street. The City is working closely with Universal Orlando to redesign this median. Universal has wanted to perform this work for some time and is looking forward to enhancing the area with a beautiful new design. Once construction is complete, this area will be replanted with vegetation to recreate the natural barrier between Frontage Road and Vineland Road.
Construction impacts will include temporary road closures along Peregrine Avenue, Cheryl Street and Frontage Road, as well as partial road closures along Vineland Avenue. Vineland Road will remain open to both east and west bound traffic throughout construction. However, at various phases, Peregrine Avenue, Cheryl Street and Frontage Road will be totally closed, as well as the corresponding intersection with Vineland Road.
Beginning April 2, 2018, Windhover Drive will be closed just east of Peregrine Avenue. See map below for details.
In 2012, the City originally embarked upon a different design from what is now proposed. That original design aimed to remediate the flooding which was occurring on Vineland Road by installing an underground pipe connection between Vineland Road and Lake Cane. However, that original design was
canceled, as a direct discharge to Lake Cane was not supported by residents in the community. Therefore the City has changed the design concept such that there will not be a connection to Lake Cane. Instead, the stormwater will be piped and routed in a different direction and discharged into an existing wetland
to the northeast of Lake Cane, which drains towards Turkey Lake. This wetland is not connected to Lake Cane.
Anticipated Start: July 2017
Anticipated Completion: Summer 2018
