Here is the link to the City of Orlando Downtown Transportation Plan dated 12/11/06.
It is a very large document with a lot of very interesting information, maps and diagrams. It makes references to the City’s Alden Road realignment consideration. If you do a search in the .pdf on “Alden” you will find 20 results including this in Section 5, page 46:
Alden Road Corridor
The Alden Road corridor may be the preferable route for transit service from Uptown to the Florida Hospital, Orlando Museum and John Young Science Center. The Alden Road corridor was the recommended corridor for the proposed Light Rail System. This option avoids crossing the CSX rail and runs parallel to CSX to the south and east. This alignment option would also use Weber Street to connect between north-south service on Orange Avenue and Magnolia Avenue, and would require new right-of-way for the alignment to connect to Highland Avenue where Alden Road would be extended to connect with Highland Avenue. Lake Highland Drive would be realigned to form a new intersection with the extended Alden Road. At Virginia Avenue the corridor should consider using Philadelphia Avenue instead of Alden Road in order to provide better separation from the CSX corridor and enable potential transit supportive development between CSX and the circulator alignment. If feasible, this corridor would be preferred to using Orange Avenue in order to avoid traffic disruption along Orange Avenue, impacts to on street parking and delay conflicts at the CSX rail crossings.
We need to monitor traffic in and out of the neighborhood to create a benchmark to show traffic impacts from the Mills Park Developement.
Please contact Gordon Spears at email@example.com if you would like to volunteer.
