Today, the Central Florida Expressway Authority (CFX) Board received an update on the State Road 408 (Spessard L. Holland East-West Expressway) Eastern Extension PD&E Study. The recommended corridor would extend approximately seven miles from where SR 408 ends at SR 50 to SR 520.
The extension would provide a new east-west travel alternative, relieving congestion on SR 50 in east Orange County. The limited access facility would provide an additional emergency evacuation route, and be a first step in a long-term vision for an expressway connection to I-95.
A public hearing on the recommended corridor for the SR 408 Eastern Extension PD&E Study will be held on Thursday, April 26 from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. at the East River High School, 650 East River Falcons Way, Orlando, FL 32833.
On May 10, 2018 the CFX Board will review the study findings and determine whether the recommended corridor should move forward for final design.
