Avalon Road

(C.R. 545) Preliminary Design Study

Update

Orange County has initiated a Preliminary Design Study for the proposed road widening and realignment improvements to Avalon Road (C.R. 545)-Village H.

Overview

In 1995 Orange County approved the framework for the Horizon West sector plan, a development model based on a collection of villages. Each village is designed to be a self-contained community, promoting connectivity between land uses and pedestrian environments. The Horizon West plan is currently planned with five (5) villages and a Town Center. Furthermore, to promote the goals of mixed land use and multimodal connectivity Orange County in 1997 adopted the Adequate Public Facilities (APF) Ordinance, which specifies the need for such connectivity measures as roadway networks, storm water management, utilities, etc.

Project Description

Avalon Road is proposed as a four (4) lane divided roadway within a 120-foot right of way. The roadway segments included in this study comprise a major component of the critical roadway network required to support Orange County's vision for the Horizon West Planning Area.

  • Segment 1: Old YMCA Road to Schofield Road
  • Segment 2: 1600 N. Marina Bay Drive to Old YMCA Road
  • Segment 3: 1300 N Flamingo Crossings to 1600 S. Marina Bay Drive
  • Segment 4 : 3000 S Flamingo Crossings to 1300 N Flamingo Crossings
