Florida 417 Toll
Central Florida GreeneWay & Seminole Expressway

Encircling the greater Orlando metropolitan area to its south and east, Florida 417 Toll (Central Florida GreeneWay & Seminole Expressway) serves both as a bypass and limited-access commuting route through Osceola, Orange, and Seminole counties. The Central Florida GreeneWay portion of the 55-mile toll facility provides access to the southern and eastern suburbs of Orlando, including Lake Nona and Union Park, as well as serving as a southern connection with Orlando International Airport (MCO). The Seminole Expressway portion of Florida 417 Toll generally serves the areas of Oviedo, Lake Jesup, Sanford, and Lake Monroe. Constructed in phases between December 1988 and September 20021, the Central Florida GreeneWay and Seminole Expressway are operated jointly between the Central Florida Expressway Authority (CFX) and Florida's Turnpike Enterprise (FTE). Florida 417 Toll, in conjunction with Florida 429 Toll (and the future Wekiva Parkway) help form the greater Orlando beltway system.

Scenes Pertaining to Florida 417 Toll
Former unsigned Florida 4080 once comprised the last leg of the original Florida 408 Toll alignment and later as a short connector between Florida 408 Toll (Holland East-West Expressway) and Florida 417 Toll (Central Florida GreeneWay) near Union Park. Until January 2013, the connector facilitated movements from Florida 408 Toll east to Florida 417 Toll north and from Florida 417 Toll south to Florida 408 west. Midway between the partial wye interchange ends existed a diamond interchage (Exit 1) with Valencia College Lane. Valencia College Lane constitutes a local east-west through route between Florida 551 (Goldenrod Road) and Econlockhatchee Trail. As part of the Florida 408 Toll/Florida 417 Toll interchange improvements, the connector and interchange was ripped out in favor of a frontage road connecting Chickasaw Trail with Valencia College Lane. At the north end of the connector, the Florida 417 Toll southbound mainline was shifted to the east and subsequently the overpass over former Florida 4080 was removed. Photo taken 11/06/06.
Motorists along Florida 50 (Colonial Drive) west prepare to leave for Florida 417 Toll south. Florida 417 Toll south provides access to Florida 408 Toll (Holland East-West Expressway) at Exit 33A/B and Orlando International Airport (MCO) via Florida 528 Toll (Exit 26). The first six mile section of Florida 417 Toll opened to traffic December 1988 between this interchange at Florida 50 and Florida 426 (Aloma Avenue). Photo taken 06/29/13.
