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, including crossing SR 50 with these lines. 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.
Intermittent side street detours will also be in place between Alafaya Tr. and Avalon Park Blvd. on both the north and south side of SR 50.
Woodbury Road just south of SR 50 will have continuous lane closure for the next month (closures began September 22nd). The contractor will be installing new water mains and connect to existing water mains under Woodbury Road. There will be one lane south bound and one lane north bound open to traffic. Depending on the exact location of the existing water main and the connection points it may be possible to open the north bound through lane and left turn lane at the intersection allowing 2 or 3 vehicles to stage in those lanes. The contractor has placed PCMS on Woodbury Road notifying motorist of the lane closures. These advance notices also give motorist the opportunity to choose alternate routes rather than remaining on north bound Woodbury.

Also much of the work being done within the lane closures include flushing and testing water lines. At times it may appear that lanes are closed for no reason as the labor and equipment is not obvious to the public. However these lane closures are necessary for the safety of the traveling public and the workers.
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.
