County Road 437 Highway Guides
North from the eastern turn of SR 438 onto Silver Star Road, Ocoee-Apopka Road is CR 437, though signs are posted infrequently. Ocoee-Apopka Road parallels the tolled Western Beltway (SR 429) through north Ocoee to unincorporated Paradise Heights and Binion Road in south Apopka. CR 437A extends Ocoee-Apopka Road northward toward Downtown Apopka while CR 437 shifts west onto Binion Road to Magnolia Park on Lake Apopka and west Apopka to U.S. 441 (Orange Blossom Trail) at Plymouth.
An implied overlap dog legs CR 437 east along Orange Blossom Trail (OBT) by the Apopka Expressway (SR 414 & 429) to Plymouth Sorrento Road. North of U.S. 441 (OBT), CR 437 (Plymouth Sorrento Road) follows a somewhat linear course just east of Wekiva Parkway (SR 429) over low rolling hills and remaining rural areas of northwest Orange County to the Lake County line.
CR 437 passes under the tolled Wekiva Parkway with no direct access just south of Lake County. Plymouth Sorrento Road otherwise bee lines north to Florida 46. The county road resumes north from Florida 46 through varying rural and suburban areas three miles to Florida 44 and 4.8 miles to CR 44A.
