Orange Ave Closure

The City of Orlando will close South Orange Avenue between Anderson St and South St from July 19 to August, 10 [GMap].

This is the stretch of road in-between the new Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center and City Commons Plaza near City Hall.

The right turn lane on eastbound South St onto southbound Orange Ave (coming from Boone Ave) will also be closed.

Detours will be posted and include taking Central Ave or South St to Division Ave and then back Orange Ave on either Anderson St or Gore St.

The road closure is to allow the City to make improvements to Orange Ave to coincide with the opening of the Dr Phillips Center and the CNL Arts Plaza. The goal is to create a seamless transition between CNL Arts Plaza and City Commons Plaza.

  1. Those projects are for lots of underground work and include brick streets. This is mostly cosmetic and above ground. Not many surprises when you can see what you are going to be working on…but we’ll see.

  2. I wonder how much this is going to affect the critical mass route later this month.
