Orange Ave Reconstruction Status
Orange Avenue, a 1.5 mile stretch from Nova Road to Beachmap Street, is undergoing a complete reconstruction. The $17.6 million project began in June 2014 and is expected to be completed in September 2016. 

Description
The roadway's base and surface will be rebuilt as well as new water, sewer and drainage systems installed,  traffic signalization and street lighting will be upgraded, sidewalks widened from 4 to 6 feet and utilities buried. 

Funding
The project was made possible by partnering with Volusia County, Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP).  The city received about $6 million in grants from the County of Volusia and FDOT. The remaining funding is from the city of Daytona Beach and a low-interest loan from the FDEP.

Status as of April 2016
Please note the construction schedule can change at any time due to weather or unforeseen conditions. Use caution and obey all posted signs and speed limits and allow extra time to reach your destination.

On March 24, the city hosted a public forum for residents and business owners at the Dickerson Center. The intent of the forum was to provide a progress report on the construction project. Click here for the city's responses to questions received during the event.   

Full Closure
Orange Avenue, from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. to Segrave Street, will be closed through the completion of the project. Businesses along this section of the roadway will remain open and access for patrons will be available via Orange Avenue and side streets. Please follow detour signs. Click here for a map of the current detour route.

The full closure of the roadway will allow for removal of the pavement, curbing and sidewalks. Reclaimed and portable water lines along with stormwater and sewer lines will be installed during this time.
