Poor Road Conditions in Orlando’s Lake Davis Neighborhood

As one of Orlando’s oldest neighborhoods, Lake Davis holds a place of high esteem in the minds of many Orlando residents (not the least of whom are those who live along its beautiful streets). Recently, an issue with the quality of the roadways has come up that is leaving those who live in Lake Davis understandably frustrated. According to these residents, the historic brick road located in their neighborhood has needed repairs for several years, but that now the state of the road is such that it is becoming dangerous.

As well as beginning to warp and buckle, the bricks composing the roadway and the curb are starting to crumble. This leads to situations where it is not clear whether or not the curb is stable or whether it is going to collapse at any moment. Furthermore, the hunks of baked clay littering the road create debris field that could potentially damage cars and cause drivers to lose control. The situation is even worse for those who chose to ride down this particular steed on motorcycles, bicycles, rollerblades, or scooters.

When concerned residents contracted Patty Sheehan, the City Commissioner for the Lake Davis area, they reportedly got no response. Additionally, one of the longtime Lake Davis residents, John Abbot, claims that when he contacted the city almost two years ago about the poor road conditions he was told to take pictures of the area and submit them, along with a detailed description of the roadway and its conditions, to the city. Abbot says that after following the department’s stated guidelines, he never heard back from anyone.

According to the Streets and Storm Water Division Manager, Lisa Henry, the reason behind the lack of attention to this particular stretch of road relates to the available funds in the city and the other important projects that soak up those funds first. Henry states that the city’s places top priority for school zones, where attempts are made to keep sidewalks and roadways in perfect shape for the safety of the children.

For residents of Lake Davis, however, it is perceived that the safety of their children is also at risk.
