Orlando South Ultimate Interchange

Florida’s Turnpike (SR 91) and Beachline Expressway (SR 528)

Introduction

Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise (FTE), part of the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), is designing improvements to the Orlando South Ultimate Interchange at Florida’s Turnpike (SR 91) and Beachline Expressway (SR 528), in Orange County, Florida.

Portions of this project are 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.

This complex interchange provides connectivity between the Turnpike Mainline (SR 91) at Beachline Expressway (SR 528), and the surface street system.

Product Development Process Graphic

Ramp reconstruction is proposed with the goals of:

  • Separating the surface street ramps from new ramps connecting Florida’s Turnpike and Beachline Expressway
  • Improved efficiency of the surface street system to minimize congestion
  • Accommodate future widening of Florida’s Turnpike
  • Provide open road tolling gantries for design speed tolling

Noise Studies are performed in the PD&E phase and the Design phase, and re-evaluated if there is a major change in design to the roadway.

Project Background

FTE concurred with the recommendations of the Project Development & Environment (PD&E) study and signed the State Environmental Impact Report (SEIR) on May 25, 2021.

Study Area

Environment

As part of the PD&E study conducted in 2021, potential impacts to the environment were considered and measures to minimize and mitigate for these impacts were incorporated into the project. Based on the recommended design, it was determined that there are no significant impacts associated with the project. As the project continues through design, any new impacts associated with the project will be identified and addressed through the permitting process with the appropriate resource agency.

Innovation

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