The City of Maitland will begin construction on July 13, 2020, to improve potable water pipelines along the west side of U.S. Highway 17-92 between Maitland Boulevard and south of Horato Avenue. The important project will replace more than a mile of decades-old and undersized pipes that are essential to Maitland’s public water service in this area. Construction is expected to take about eight months, weather permitting, starting south of Horatio Avenue. The new, larger pipeline also will be installed outside of the highway right-of-way. Necessary easements were acquired from property owners along the route. A priority with these improvements is to minimize potential impact to businesses. Property accesses will remain open. Some work will be conducted during evening hours. In some areas, single-lane closure along U.S. 17-92 will be needed between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. weekdays. Water service will not be interrupted. For questions, call (407) 529-6223.
