The Central Florida Expressway Authority (CFX) announced at the August Board meeting that the planning process for the 2045 Master Plan will commence in August 2020.
The 2045 Master Plan is a long-range planning study that identifies potential transportation projects over the next 25 years. CFX’s Master Plan guides future operations and capital investment decisions and serves as the basis for the regional toll agency’s Five-Year Work Plan.
During the first phase of the planning process, CFX will seek input from government leaders, transportation planners and other community stakeholders in Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola and Seminole Counties. CFX will collect data and input on various plan elements such as: existing expressway system needs, planning for future technologies, potential expansion projects, sustainability practices and multimodal opportunities.
This vital input will be evaluated and incorporated into the final plan during the second phase of the process. In previous CFX Master Plans, stakeholder input helped identify key projects that are complete or under construction, including the Wekiva Parkway and the I-4/SR 408 Interchange.
CFX’s 2045 Master Plan is expected to be completed by fall of 2021, but was delayed due to COVID-19, and was completed in Spring 2022.
