Transportation System Management and Operations (Tsm&O) Improvements

FPID: 452116-1


Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise, part of the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), is designing Transportation System Management and Operations (TSM&O) improvements for the State Road (SR) 429 southbound exit ramp at the US 192 interchange in Orange County. This project is in Design, which is the third phase of the FDOT project development process. During this phase, construction plans, specifications, and final estimates to build a project are developed.

The TSM&O improvements are proposed with the goals of:

  • Widening the existing single lane ramp from SR 429 to US 192 to a multi-lane ramp.
  • Lengthening the ramp from 1,500 feet to 4,300 feet to a location near the existing toll plaza.
  • Reconfiguring the ramp terminal at the intersection with US 192 to include three right turn lanes and two left turn lanes.
  • Changing the southbound US 192 off ramp so traffic will exit SR 429 at the existing southbound cash toll plaza exit. The cash lanes will be converted to accept electronic tolls only.
  • Drainage modifications
  • Modifying SR 429 southbound shoulders
  • Adding retaining walls to minimize impacts to existing stormwater facilities
  • Modifications to signage, drainage, lighting, and intelligent transportation system (ITS) components
  • Modifications to traffic signals to match the new ramp terminal configuration including replacement of existing mast arm signal poles and all other signal equipment affected by the ramp widening.

Project Background

Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise concurred with the recommendations of the PD&E Study to Widen Western Beltway (SR 429) from North of I-4/SR 429 Interchange to Seidel Road. The recommendations included TSM&O improvements at State Road 429’s intersection with US 192.

Study Area


The Enterprise is at the forefront of planning for a safer, more efficient, and technologically advanced transportation system for the future. The Enterprise continually seeks opportunities to integrate emerging transportation technologies that can help reduce congestion, create mobility choices, minimize environmental impacts, and improve safety. The Enterprise also recognizes that connected and automated vehicle (CAV) technologies hold unprecedented opportunities for enhancing mobility and increasing safety on our roadways.
