Waterford Lakes Small Area Study

What is the Waterford Lakes Small Area Study?

The Waterford Lakes area has experienced substantial congestion issues due to increases in residential and commercial development. Orange County is addressing these issues and safety concerns by evaluating the overall performance of the region’s roadway and multimodal network with a comprehensive study.

The Waterford Lakes Small Area Study is a one year analysis of area roadways that concluded in May 2013 and resulted in a report containing a prioritized list of recommended improvements.

Although not a part of the Waterford Lakes Small Area Study, the Lake Underhill Road Reconstruction Project lies within the study area. For information pertaining to the reconstruction of Lake Underhill Road between Alafaya Trail and Waterford Chase Parkway please click here.

What Area Did The
Study Include?

The study area includes the entire Waterford Lakes Master Community Association and the Eastwood Master Community Association.

What Did The Study Entail?

The study included vehicle, pedestrian and bicycle traffic counts on major roadways and intersections. Additionally, assessments of school pedestrian safety, evaluations of existing and future transit service and related mobility concerns were studied. The report also took an inventory of traffic control devices, striping and roadway infrastructure and analyzed intersection and roadway capacity.

Public Involvement

As part of this study, District 4 Commissioner Jennifer Thompson and Orange County staff hosted several community meetings. Meeting notices were mailed to all property owners within the study area. The purpose of the meetings was to gather information to assist in the identification of issues for the study.

The study did not include storm water, drainage issues or the installation of neighborhood traffic calming devices such as speed humps.

Project Status

The study was completed May 2013. Please refer to the "At A Glance" section to the left to view the Final Report dated May 2013 and other documents under "Study Results".
