State Road 528 (Martin B. Andersen Beachline Expressway) provides a crucial connection for residents and tourists between the attractions area, the Orlando International Airport and the East Coast beaches and Cape Canaveral. The toll road, formerly known as the Bee Line Expressway, also connects the John F. Kennedy Space Center and the aerospace industry with metropolitan Orlando.
The 41-mile expressway extends east from Interstate 4 in the International Drive resort area across State Road 417 (Central Florida GreeneWay) and Interstate 95 to end at U.S. Highway 1 in Cocoa.
The Beachline is owned and maintained by three agencies, the Central Florida Expressway Authority, Florida's Turnpike Enterprise and the Florida Department of Transportation. The Expressway Authority operates the 23 miles from near U.S. Highway 441 to SR 520. The Turnpike operates the western-most eight miles as the Beachline Expressway West. FDOT District 5 operates the nine miles east of SR 520 to the Bennett Causeway at US 1.
