The purpose of the project is to increase roadway capacity and enhance safety along State Road (S.R.) 50 (Colonial Drive) from east of Avalon Park Boulevard to east of Chuluota Road (County Road (C.R.) 419) near Bithlo in Orange County. The roadway is experiencing significant congestion and future development indicates the need to widen the road from four to six lanes to serve the community’s needs.
The project proposes to provide three lanes in each direction separated by a raised median. Full and directional median openings will be provided at certain locations along the corridor.
Safer accommodations for both bicycles and pedestrians will be included, as will modifications to the Chuluota Road intersection to enhance safety. Drainage upgrades and enhanced lighting are also planned. Access to the Park and Ride facility will be reconfigured for the new S.R. 50 typical section.
