Orange County Public Works Roads and Drainage crews have began repaving part of North Apopka-Vineland Road. The work will be done in two phases with the first phase will stretch between West Colonial Drive and Silver Star Road, while the second will be from Silver Star Road to Starr Drive.
The project is expected to be completed by December 21st of this year. According to the county, the roads will be repaved using a "hot in-place" asphalt recycling process where the existing pavement is heated and milled before it is reapplied with a recycling agent to restore the viscosity of the aged asphalt.
The crews will work from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends. Lane closures will be in place while the work is being done. Drivers should be aware of lane closures. Signs will instruct them on how the work will impact traffic. Variable message boards will be in place to alert drivers of the upcoming project and traffic impact.
