Today, the Central Florida Expressway Authority (CFX) Board voted unanimously to adopt a $3.2 billion Fiscal Year 2022-2026 Five-year Work Plan. The new Work Plan will fund capital and maintenance improvements to CFX’s expressways over the next five years.
Working towards the goal of a world-class system, the new Work Plan is a robust and forward-thinking approach that will allow CFX to continue to invest in the existing 125-mile expressway system while also working to address Central Florida’s mobility needs. This plan is anticipated to create approximately 41,600 jobs in Central Florida over the next five years.
The new $3.2 billion Work Plan is divided into 10 Categories with the four largest expenditure Categories making up approximately 94% of the plan’s funding distribution. These include: System Expansion Projects (47%); Existing System Improvements (40%); Major Interchange Projects (3.6%); and Replacement Projects (3.2%).
Highlights of the FY 2022-2026 Work Plan include:
- $1.5 billion for major expansion projects including the proposed SR 414 Expressway Extension, The SR 516 Lake-Orange Expressway, and the SR 538 Poinciana Parkway Extension
