An approximately 1.3-mile stretch of Orange Camp Rd., connecting the south end of DeLand to I-4, is about to get a $10 million upgrade.
The Volusia County Council awarded a construction contract to P&S Paving for the four-laning of Orange Camp Rd. from just east of Blue Lake Ave. to the Interstate 4 interchange.
The project also will include construction of a roundabout where Orange Camp Rd. intersects with the Martin Luther King Jr. Beltway.
Valued at $10.08 million, the contract includes about $1.3 million in work to the City of DeLand’s utility lines that are in the path of the widening project.
Construction is expected to take approximately 18 months to complete.
