On April 26, 1867, the community of Port Orange was established on the banks of the Halifax River. Now, some 148 years later, Port Orange is a community of 56,067 people who call this place home.

Planned by choice, not by chance, Port Orange blends beauty and opportunity within its 28 square miles. From its tree-lined streets to its parks, this community is the pride of Volusia County.

This family, which we call Port Orange, is made up of some 150 distinct "neighborhoods". They are the core of this community, making it a great place in which to live, learn, work, and play.

Because of the City's highly regarded development approach, an investment in Port Orange is a secure investment. And so today, as we celebrate our community spirit, we are proud to call Port Orange "our home".

I-95 Design Build Project Updates
Construction for this project began on February 9th, 2015 at Interstate 95 (I-95) and State Road (SR) 44 in New Smyrna Beach.

The tasks consist of erosion control, clearing and grubbing, drainage and roadway work. The drainage improvements are nearing completion along SR 44.

A temporary traffic shift will be occurring soon to allow for the reconstruction of the SR 44 ramp. The safety improvements along the SR 44 off ramp consist of eliminating the curvature of the ramp so as to provide a more direct access to SR 44.

Construction at this location is anticipated to be completed by the end of March.

Clearing and grubbing will also begin this month on I-95 going southbound (SB) from Interstate 4 (I-4) to SR 421 (Dunlawton Avenue). Mobilization of the Spruce Creek bridges and SR 421 will occur towards the end of March.
