Traffic Impacts
Traffic flow around the work site may be impacted at times during construction.  Lanes on Villareal Dr. may be restricted and a flagman will be directing traffic during these times.  Businesses and residents should anticipate traffic delays during periods of construction activity.  The schedule may shift due to inclement weather or material supply issues.

Project Information
The City of Orange Water Division began construction of a new booster pump station at 2815 E. Villareal Dr.  Construction of the project will take approximately one calendar year to complete.  The new pump station will replace an old and failing pump station and will ensure the reliability of water service to this neighborhood.  The new pump station will be located on Villareal Dr. on the western slope of the former Marywood school facility.  The City's contractor for the project (SCW Contracting Corp) began construction in September 2014 and has moved on to the site to begin grading and construction of the station.

Traffic Signal Installation - Glassell St. & Palm Ave.

The intersection of Glassell St. & Palm Ave. is heavily used by vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists.  Because of the volume of uses entering the intersection, the current 4-way stop needs to be replaced by a traffic signal.  There continues to be conflicts between all modes of transportation especially pedestrians and vehicles resulting in safety concerns and excessive delays.  The installation of a traffic signal will facilitate safe pedestrian crossings by assigning right-of-way to both pedestrians and vehicular traffic.  This will allow for smoother and more efficient intersection operation.  Additionally; the installation of the traffic signal features decorative poles consistent with the Old Towne design standard.  The installation of traffic signal equipment includes cabinet, controller, service, CCTV camera, emergency vehicle preemption, safety lighting, vehicle and pedestrian signal heads, illuminated LED street name signs, ADA-compliant sidewalk access ramps, an Audible Pedestrian System (APS), and new signing and striping.

There will be no full road closures during the daytime construction schedule.  A minimum of one traffic lane will remain open in each direction at all times.  Businesses and residents should anticipate traffic delays and limited access to their businesses and homes during periods of construction activity.  The schedule may shift due to inclement weather or material supply issues.  The contractor will post "No Parking" signs at least 48 hours in advance of construction activity.  These signs will include updated schedule information as necessary.
