Orange County South Bluford Avenue at State Road (S.R.) 50/West Colonial Drive will be closed from 7 a.m. Friday, May 5, to 7 a.m. Monday, May 8.

Motorists on S.R. 50 needing to access South Bluford Avenue will be directed to use Maguire Road as a detour.

The contractor, The Lane Construction Corporation, will be
performing a pipe crossing. Electronic message boards have been installed to inform motorists about the road closure, and detour signs will direct traffic.


The work is part of a Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) project to widen S.R 50 (Colonial Drive) from four lanes to six lanes from S.R. 429 to just east of the West Oaks Mall. Please note construction schedules may change due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.
