Concord Street will be closed in both directions at the railroad crossing between North Orange Avenue and North Garland Avenue from 9 p.m. Friday, May 12, to 3 a.m. Monday, May 15. The closure is necessary to replace the crossing, including construction of new concrete panels and asphalt approaches.
The closure will affect traffic trying to access the on ramp to I-4 westbound from Concord Street. Traffic traveling toward I-4 on Concord Street will be directed to turn left onto North Orange Avenue, right onto Amelia Street, right onto North Garland Avenue to the entrance ramp. Detour route signage will be placed at key locations in the area to direct drivers around the work zone. Access to businesses will be maintained.
The crossing replacement is part of project to improve the tracks and grade crossings within the existing SunRail corridor from the DeBary Station in Volusia County to the Sand Lake Road Station in Orange County.
