Orange County Reopening Roads After Storm Impacts
Weight limit in place for Rouse Road due to flood damage
Orange County, Fla. – As Orange County continues to recover from the impacts of Hurricane Ian, the Public Works Department has reopened previously closed roads due to flooding.
On the east side of the County, Buck Road has been reopened west of Rouse Road, however there is a weight limit of 10 tons per vehicle. A traffic shift remains in place along Rouse Road between Buck Road and University Boulevard because of damage caused by water.
Lake Ellenor Drive, west of Orange Blossom Trail and north of Sand lake Road is now open to traffic.
Water has receded enough that Phillbrook Court in the Andover Lakes subdivision is drivable. Rogan Road in the Conway area is also drivable.
Public Works crews continue to monitor conditions on roads and will reopen additional roads when possible.
