The City of Orlando Public Works Department and the Orange County Public Works Department have discussed the paving of W.D. Judge Drive from Mercy Drive to John Young Parkway. A majority of this road is within the corporate limits of the City; however, a small segment is within Orange County outside the City. The County has agreed to pave this entire segment with one of its contractors (Asphalt Paving Systems, Inc.), splitting the cost 50/50 with the City.
The total cost of the paving is estimated to be $264,403.65, with the City share being $132,201.82. The City and the County would pay the contractor separately and directly for their respective cost share.
Upon the completion of the paving contracted project described above (which will be administrated by Orange County Public Works at no additional cost), the County and City staff agree to bring a Road Transfer Agreement, including transfer of all right-of-way, interest, operation, and maintenance responsibilities, to their respective governing boards to transfer W.D. Judge Drive to the City.
