Starting in early 2021, CFX will begin widening SR 417 to six lanes (three lanes in each direction) to improve traffic flow on one of CFX’s busiest expressways. CFX is also adding wider median shoulders that can temporarily accommodate additional traffic during emergency response events, such as traffic accidents or hurricane evacuations. Sound walls are being proposed along the corridor.
The SR 417 Widening project will be broken into the following five segments to minimize impact to motorists and will take approximately four years to complete all five segments once work is underway.
Segment 1: International Drive to John Young Parkway
This 4.1-mile project includes seven proposed sound walls.
Segment 2: John Young Parkway to Landstar Boulevard
This 3.7-mile project includes seven proposed sound walls.
Segment 3: Landstar Boulevard to Boggy Creek Road
This 3.7-mile project has eight proposed sound walls.
Segment 4: Boggy Creek Road to Narcoossee Road
A noise analysis will be conducted to determine potential sound wall locations along this 4.5-mile segment.
Segment 5: Narcoossee Road to SR 528
A noise analysis will be conducted to determine potential locations for sound walls along this 4.7-mile segment.
