In order to help relieve congestion on US. Highway 441 (Orange Blossom Trail) in Apopka and improve traffic flow between State Road 429 (Daniel Webster Western Beltway) and State Road 414 (John Land Apopka Expressway), the Orlando-Orange County Expressway Authority is extending SR 429/SR 414 from Boy Scout Road to US 441 near Plymouth Sorrento Road.
This $53.6 million project is scheduled to be completed by Spring 2013. The new expressway will feature six travel lanes (three in each direction) and a new connector road to allow access between SR 429 and US 441 near Plymouth Sorrento Road. Once the SR 429/SR 414 extension is completed, the existing section of SR 429 from north of SR 414 to US 441 will be renamed State Road 451.
Once complete, these projects will accommodate planned future growth in west Orange County and provide improved access to I-4, the attractions and other major business centers. More than 15,600 vehicles a day travel on SR 429 in west Orange County. That number is expected to increase to 26,100 vehicles a day by 2029.
