This project plans to construct improvements along State Road (S.R.) 436 from north of Old Cheney Highway to north of University Park Drive in Orlando. This project will repave the roadway and implement strategies to increase safety for all users along the project corridor. Safety improvements include speed management enhancements such as lane width reduction, a barrier curb, right turn lane elimination, driveway modifications, and traffic-calming landscaping.
The project will also focus on cyclist safety with separated and designated bicycle facilities and particular emphasis on pavement markings. A midblock crossing with a Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon (PHB) will also be installed at University Park Drive.
During construction, motorists should expect nightly lane closures. Electronic message boards and other signage will direct traffic through the work zone. Road conditions during construction will become less apparent as the project progresses. Motorists are asked to exercise caution and reduce their speed while driving through the work zone.
The contractor will maintain pedestrian access to sidewalks during construction using signed detours, traffic control devices, and temporary walkways and ramps when appropriate. The construction schedule may change due to weather or other unexpected conditions.
