Does 408 near more lanes near downtown Orlando? CFX looking into possibility

The Central Florida Expressway Authority is studying the possibility of expanding the number of lanes on State Road 408 near downtown Orlando in an effort to improve traffic flow.

Last September, CFX began a Project Development and Environment Study for capacity improvements on SR 408 between Kirkman Road and Church Street.

According to CFX, more than 164,000 vehicles travel on SR 408 near downtown Orlando every day.

The study will examine alternative options to improve traffic flow, including the addition of an eastbound lane from Kirkman Road to Church Street, and a westbound lane from John Young Parkway to Kirkman Road.

The organization says it expects to hold one public meeting during the six-month study to obtain public feedback. Information on the public meeting has not yet been released.
