Florida Dept. of Transportation plans to cut travel time
The Florida Department of Transportation is working on plans to better transport Central Florida’s talent pool to where the jobs are — or visa versa.
Loreen Bobo told a crowd of business executives during Orlando Business Journal’s recent Business of Transportation event that the department is talking about some future roadway corridors that will either help establish new employment areas or help more efficiently create links between some of the major job centers and communities where the working population lives.
Bobo, who is FDOT’s construction program manager for the $2.3 billion I-4 Ultimate highway project, said these are some roadway priorities for Central Florida:
- Searching for options to better connect southeast Orange County, the home of Lake Nona’s 600-acre Medical City biotech hub, and Florida’s Space Coast in Brevard County.
- How to plan roadways for the new Wellness Way corridor south of State Road 50 in Orange County into Lake County, a corridor that’s expected to give rise to a high-wage, health care-focused employment hub
- Creating transportation options with a new bus-rapid transit project on U.S. Highway 192, one of the region’s busiest tourist corridors
With these plans to decrease travel time residents and tourists alike will reap the reward. With travel may be shortened investment homes for either short term rental or long term rental will get a bit more lucrative.
