It may be a new year, but construction activity remains high on the Central Florida Expressway Authority’s (CFX) State Road 417 capacity improvements project.
In February 2021, CFX began working on this 21-mile stretch of SR 417. This project will add a travel lane in each direction between International Drive and SR 528, as well as wider median shoulders that can temporarily accommodate additional traffic during emergency response events.
The contractor continues to make excellent headway on the inside widening work between Boggy Creek Road and SR 528. Also, a lot of the bridge work at Narcoossee Road, Moss Park Road and Dowden Road is complete, and most of the noise walls located along the right of way are built. The remaining noise walls will be constructed later in the project.
Completion of the full 21-mile corridor is scheduled for spring of 2024.
CFX owns, operates and maintains a 125-mile, user-funded network of expressways for 3.3 million residents and more than 75 million visitors in Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties. As a regional transportation agency, we recognize increasing traffic demands as more people choose to make Central Florida their home. Making great progress on SR 417 means CFX is that much closer to improving traffic flow and safety on one of our system’s busiest expressways.
