Orange County – A traffic shift of westbound State Road (S.R.) 50 from Blackwood Avenue to Clarke Road is scheduled to occur overnight on Sunday, April 23. Work will begin at 8 p.m. Sunday, April 23 and be open to traffic by 5 a.m. Monday, April 24. This new traffic pattern will be in place for a few months.
