The City's Transportation Master Plan recommends an eastern through-connection linking State Road 434 to a northward extension of Center Lake Lane.
In May or 2015, staff began working with the City's Engineering Consultants on the design of the Wood Street Extension Project to accomplish the planned transportation enhancement and public benefit without impacting private property or wetlands. Design of the project was completed in September 2016, and is in the bidding process.
Once constructed, Wood Street will be extended eastward to connect with Windy Pine Way within the Oviedo on the Park development. Windy Pine Way will be a public roadway that will serve as a northern extension of Center Lake Lane and connect to Oviedo Boulevard.
The Wood Street extension project is consistent with the City's strategic planning goals of providing better connectivity, enhancing transit options and promoting the ability of people to efficiently move around the City.
The project will take 60 days to construct once a contract is awarded. The bid is expected to advertise in November 2017.
