Construction on Lakeshore Boulevard Brings Road Closures
Published on: Jan 10, 2018
KISSIMMEE, Fla. – The City of Kissimmee announces the final phase of construction on the Kissimmee Lakefront Park Redevelopment Project to begin on Tuesday, January 29.
The improvement project focuses on Lakeshore Boulevard and Brinson Park, bringing road closures between Monument Avenue and Neptune Road. The duration of this improvement project will be approximately 18 months, until approximately June 30, 2019. Motorists travelling in either direction on Neptune Road can use Tohopekaliga Avenue to travel west. Motorists on Neptune Road can also travel east through Lawrence Silas Boulevard, to access the newly widened East Oak Street.
During the construction phase, Kissimmee Lakefront Park guests will not be able to park on Lakeshore Boulevard or Monument Avenue. Residents and visitors should utilize the Kissimmee Intermodal Center Parking Garage behind the Kissimmee Civic Center.
This project will create a larger, linear park space between the roadway and the lake to allow for additional green space, new park benches, and larger pedestrian friendly sidewalks. In addition to Lakeshore Boulevard becoming a bricked road, it will receive drainage improvements, new landscaping and energy efficient LED street lighting.
The intersection at Lakeshore Boulevard and Neptune Road will receive a new traffic signal and pedestrian crossings to make it safer. This area will be a gateway into the City and the Kissimmee Lakefront area.
