Orlando – W. Pineloch Avenue will be closed in both directions at the railroad crossing near Wadsworth Avenue from 7 a.m. Saturday, February 24, to 7 p.m. Sunday, February 25. The closure is necessary to replace the crossing, including removing steep and sloped asphalt between the two tracks, which will improve safety and provide a smoother ride for vehicles crossing the tracks.
Detour route signage will be placed at key locations in the area to direct drivers around the work zone. Access to businesses will be reduced and truck traffic will not be allowed through residential areas. The detour information for the closure is as follows:
- Westbound W. Pineloch Ave. traffic will be directed to turn right onto S. Orange Ave. and then left onto W. Michigan St., then left on Lake Holden Terrance, left on W. Illiana Ave., right onto Wadsworth Ave., then right to go back onto W. Pineloch Avenue. Local traffic will be permitted to continue west on W. Pineloch Ave. to the closure.
