Florida’s Turnpike Opens New Ramps to Greeneway

New ramps connecting SR 417 to Florida’s Turnpike just south of Orlando will open the morning of May 16, 2016.

Construction has completed on three new ramps connecting Florida’s Turnpike with State Road 417, also called the Central Florida GreeneWay, and those ramps are set to open to rush-hour traffic Monday, May 16, 2016, according to Florida’s Department of Transportation. F.D.O.T. made the announcement Thursday afternoon.

The new interchange has been under construction, in stages, since late 2013. The first ramps opened in the fall of 2015. Monday’s ramp openings will mark completion of the second stage of the new interchange construction. A final stage, which will complete the last three ramps in the interchange, is set to begin construction later this year, according to the F.D.O.T.’s news release.

The new interchange also marks continued expansion of Florida’s Toll-by-Plate program, which is eliminating cash-toll facilities at many interchanges. The entirety of Florida’s toll road system is slated to be completely cashless within a few years, following a national trend toward cashless and electronic toll collection, even at bridges and tunnels.

F.D.O.T. will open the new ramps to traffic at 6 a.m. on May 16.
