06/29/2020 Florida’s Turnpike decides against Colonial Parkway toll road expansion in Orange County
June 29, 2020 3:53 pm
Upon completion of its project development and environmental study, along with a preliminary traffic and revenue estimate, Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise concluded that revenue from the tolled lanes from its proposed project could only support 25-30% of the project costs. As a result, it will not be moving forward with the project.
The concept would have widened Colonial Parkway/ SR 50. The discarded plans included new travel lanes and new limited access toll lanes for a total of ten lanes as well as a design to reduce congestion, add continuous sidewalks and multi-use trails, and improve pedestrian and bicycle safety.
