SR 414 Expressway Extension PD&E Study
About the SR 414 Expressway Extension Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study
In March 2020, the Central Florida Expressway Authority (CFX) began a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study of the SR 414 Expressway Extension. The study will evaluate alternatives for a proposed elevated expressway extension of the tolled SR 414 (John Land Apopka Expressway) along SR 414 (Maitland Boulevard) from US 441 (Orange Blossom Trail) to SR 434 (Forest City Road), in Orange and Seminole counties. During peak travel times, drivers can spend nearly a half hour getting through the three signalized intersections along this stretch of SR 414.
The proposed 2.3-mile project will provide a direct connection between the eastern end of the SR 414 (John Land Apopka Expressway) and Interstate 4 (I-4). Project alternatives will involve various configurations of elevated, limited-access toll lanes on SR 414 (Maitland Boulevard) to provide needed capacity between US 441 and SR 434 while maintaining the existing local access lanes.
The proposed improvements also include reconfiguring the existing SR 414 (Maitland Boulevard) to accommodate the SR 414 toll facility while maintaining two local access lanes in each direction of SR 414. The 15-month study, coordinated with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), will analyze intersection improvements, bridge modifications at Lake Bosse and Little Wekiva River, stormwater management facilities, pedestrian and bicycle needs, and access management modifications. A No-Build Alternative will also be considered.
About Public Involvement
Public involvement and interagency coordination will be an integral part of the PD&E study process, and opportunities for public participation will be provided throughout the study. CFX anticipates holding a public workshop and a public hearing as part of this study.
