UPDATE (5/10/2017): The MetroPlan Orlando Board unanimously approved this amendment to the 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan.
The MetroPlan Orlando Board will consider a proposed amendment to the 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan during its May 10 meeting.
Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise is requesting approval of the amendment to the 2040 Plan to include removal of one project previously assumed to be committed for funding, addition of an unfunded need to the funded list, a new corridor PD&E Study in East Orlando and three interchange modifications.
