About CFX

A Regional Approach to Transportation Planning

The Central Florida Expressway Authority (CFX) was established in 2014 with an expanded mandate to build and maintain a regional transportation network that connects Lake, Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties. Additionally, CFX has been empowered to consider other transportation options within its right of way. Multimodal, fixed guideway and other new technology solutions are now within reach, with the backbone of a highly successful expressway system supporting them.

CFX is responsible for the construction, maintenance and operation of a limited-access expressway system that serves a region with more than 2.3 million residents and an estimated 60 million annual visitors.  The CFX system includes 109 centerline miles, 741 lane miles (including ramps), 59 interchanges, 285 bridges and 14 mainline toll plazas. The entire system is supported by tolls; no taxes of any kind fund CFX operations.

On average, more than 1 million toll transactions are recorded every day, and more than 80% occur electronically. Introduced in 1994, the E-PASS transponder was the first electronic toll-collection device in Florida. Today, over a half-million transponders are in circulation in Central Florida.
