SEPTEMBER 2019 | ISSUE 58
In CFX’s September Board meeting, CFX Director of Construction Ben Dreiling and Director of Engineering Will Hawthorne presented plans for a project that will expand and reconfigure the interchange at SR 528 and SR 436 to improve traffic flow in and around the Orlando International Airport. 

The project includes new bridges and flyover ramps coupled with widening SR 528 to six lanes to enhance mobility and reduce delays during peak travel times. The project was designed to minimize any disruptions to the existing traffic flow around the airport during construction. 

At their October meeting, the CFX Board will vote on a resolution identifying the SR 528/SR 436 Interchange Improvements Project as a Project of Critical Concern. This designation is reserved for projects of great magnitude, complexity and prominence with respect to Central Florida.

If approved, CFX will begin seeking qualification packages from contractors who meet specific criteria in the areas of safety, financial soundness, performance history, available resources and approach to the project, followed by requests for competitive low bids. The project is anticipated to begin in the fall of 2020.
CFX’s commitment to sustainability is demonstrated in its landscaping practices, including promoting efficient use of limited seasonal rainfall and growing plants that require minimal maintenance. This commitment is also reflected in two projects that recently won awards from the Florida Nursery, Growers and Landscape Association.

The SR 408 Raised Median Project (pictured left) won in the category of Landscape Installation/Renovation (Government), for its showcase of plants in various colors, sizes and shapes that thrive year-round. 

CFX’s SR 429/SR 414 System Interchange (right) landscaping won in the category of Environmental Stewardship. The project involved planting several thousand Florida-grown trees to cover more than 16 acres surrounding the system interchange. This reforestation beautifies the area, offers a habitat for wildlife, and enriches the soil.

PROJECT UPDATES
Nearly 100 people attended the Aug. 29 public hearing for the Poinciana Parkway Extension Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study. The proposed project would extend Poinciana Parkway from its northern end to County Road 532/Osceola Polk Line Road. 

At the open house portion of the evening, attendees asked questions of the study team and viewed displays and a video about the proposed extension. You can view the presentations from the meeting here
