The Central Florida Expressway Authority began milling and resurfacing State Road 528 (Martin B. Andersen Beachline Expressway) in east Orange County between State Road 417 (Central Florida GreeneWay) and State Road 520 in summer 2019. Crews are paving more than 15-miles of the expressway and improving the northbound State Road 417 ramp to westbound State Road 528. The work consists of three different projects. The segment that runs from Innovation Way to Dallas Boulevard and the segment that runs from Dallas Boulevard to State Road 520 began the first week of June 2019. The portion from State Road 417 to Innovation Way began in September 2019. All three projects total more than $31.6 million. The projects are expected to be complete in fall 2020.
Drivers can expect nightly lane closures Sundays through Thursdays and sometimes on Friday and Saturday nights. The lane closures are only allowed during overnight hours and non-peak times.
For the safety of motorists and work crews, speed limits will be strictly enforced during construction. Speeding fines are doubled in work zones when workers are present. Motorists are reminded to change lanes for safety when they see Road Rangers assisting other motorists or flashing lights – it’s Florida law.
