Inside Universal forum user MagicMagicMagic has discovered project permits for Project 791 located in Jurassic Park at Islands of Adventure. The permits call for demolition, site clearing, and fence construction. Based on further research the location of the demolition will be the old Triceratops Encounter location, where currently a small portion is used for the Raptor Encounter experience.

Rumors have picked up in the recent months on the long suggested Jurassic Park expansion is going to happen late Summer 2018. While information is sparse at this time it is expected to focus on the raptors from the movies and likely open in summer 2020 or later.

Additionally Inside Universal is reporting the Universal Studios Hollywood Jurassic Park River Adventure is going down for a lengthy upgrade:

Inside Universal has learned that the planned closure for Jurassic Park River Adventure at Universal Studios Hollywood is set for Sept 3, 2018, following the Labor Day weekend and will reopen as an all-new attraction in 2019.
The refurbishment is set to overhaul and modernize scenes throughout the existing ride design, and feature all-new animatronic elements, to bring the current Jurassic World story to life.
While not confirmed for Islands of Adventure, yet, it is likely the new attraction will focus on the Jurassic World series of movies, possibly upgrading the land from Jurassic Park to Jurassic World.

Stay tuned to Parkscope and Inside Universal for more information as it develops.
