Mattamy Homes’ site contractor, Jr. Davis Construction (JDC), continues work on the roadway and bridge construction for the extension of Celebration Boulevard.

The “work” is the construction of the mile-long Celebration Boulevard Extension (CBE) from Celebration High School (CHS) to the front entrance of Island Village.  This includes roadway and bridge construction only.  Construction of the Island Village community is anticipated to commence later this year. Public vehicular and pedestrian traffic within the CBE construction site is prohibited.

Mattamy Homes will issue these Construction Advisories periodically to inform people of general construction activity within the flow of traffic along Celebration Boulevard between World Drive and CHS.

Please stay tuned for future advisories. For questions related to the project, please contact
