FTE is a business unit of the Department of Transportation. It operates the state’s 461-mile system of limited access toll highways,
Stantec’s design for the $212 million project, will increase the number of travel lanes from four to eight and will facilitate future express lanes and electronic tolling operations within the 10-mile project area, from the Minneola interchange north to US 27.
The 10-mile project is part of FTE’s phased plan to widen 37 miles of the Turnpike within Lake and Orange Counties with the goal of improving traveler safety, mobility, travel time reliability and future demand for capacity in response to anticipated population growth.
As part of the project scope, Stantec will take the lead in ing design the Turnpike widening and pavement restoration. It will be responsible for milling and resurfacing, implementation of all-electronic tolling capabilities, design of future dynamically priced express lanes, emergency shoulder utilization, surveying, lighting, and environmental services.
Project design is anticipated for completion January 2022.
