Oleander segment closing to traffic for two months
Placeholder Image

Oleander Avenue between Woodward and Peach will be closed to traffic for two months starting Monday, Dec. 23.

It is expected to reopen by Feb.  28.

The closure is due to construction work related to a two of new residential developments taking place on both the east and west side of Oleander. Crews are currently installing underground pipes where a main road will bisect both subdivisions.

On the west side of Oleander is the Wildwood subdivision being built by D.R. Horton. Opposite this project on the east side of the road is the Oleander Estates project of Raymus Homes: The Next Generation. This “thoughtfully planned community” will consist of 532 single-family homes plus a six-acre park. The site is the former home of the family-owned Luiz Dairy that goes back to the 1920s.

The Wildwood residential project will consist of 116 single-family detached homes offering living spaces that range from 2,085- to 3,386-square-foot homes, according to the project’s web site. The company is now starting a list of interested buyers, according to a billboard erected at the project site.

Oleander Avenue is located midway between South Union Road to the east and South Airport Way to the west. The south end of Oleander may be accessed either from Peach Avenue, both at Union Road and Airport Way, or at West Ripon Road where Oleander dead-ends to the south..
