Bluford Avenue Reconstruction

$9,680,000 total cost: $4,280,000 from general bond funds; also includes $2,400,000 from utility bond funds and $3,000,000 from stormwater utility revenues. Reconstruct Bluford Avenue from Delaware Street to Silver Star Road concurrent with installation of water and sanitary sewer utilities, stormwater management, and roadside landscaping.  Includes $800,000 for putting powerlines underground.  Bluford Avenue is the central transportation facility for north-south travel through the city, extending from Old Winter Garden Road to the south to Silver Star Road and, though its functional extension as Lakewood Avenue, to the SR 429 interchange at Clarcona-Ocoee Road.  The intent of the streetscape project is to develop a boulevard appearance after construction of the utilities and stormwater facilities that will support adjacent higher density development.  Using the complete streets design framework, this project reaches its objective at a lower cost than typical capacity improvement projects on urban arterials.
