Utility work across Alafaya Trail near SR 50 began on January 22, 2015. This will include all day continuous lane closures-affecting some travel lanes-on southbound and northbound Alafaya Trail, at Colonial for several weeks. The project team will work hard to keep traffic flowing and access to businesses.
Weather and unforeseen conditions could delay the beginning as well as the completion of this work. The project team will keep you up to date.

As work progresses, you are beginning to see eastbound lanes shifted to a new pattern at Dean Road and eventually to Lake Berge. This will allow the first part of the new eastbound roadway to be constructed, and also half of the big storm water culverts that cross Colonial to be rebuilt.
You can also see the new eastbound pavement area starting to take shape going east from Dean Road. Pedestrians are currently being directed to the north side of SR 50 (Colonial Drive), and will be until the new curb and sidewalk are completed on the south side.
This work is estimated to be completed by February 2016.
Sunday, March 1st to 7th
- Eastbound Traffic: 8:00 PM through 7: 00 AM
- Westbound and side streets: 8:00 PM until 6:00 AM
Contractor has scheduled lane closures eastbound and westbound on SR 50 between Dean Rd. and Avalon Park Blvd. They will be working on water and force main pipe installations. This will include crossing SR 50 with these lines and temporary lane construction. The Constractor is also working on a lane shift eastbound from Dean Road to Alafaya Trail. This will include closing the inside and outside lanes depending on the activity at the given location. Lanes will be closed one at a time.
This project consists of the widening and reconstruction of the SR 50 roadway from four to six lanes, the addition of bike lanes, intersection improvements, sidewalks, drainage ponds, and bridge culvert replacements.
