Upgrades to the six-lane arterial portion included construction of a single point urban interchange (SPUI) with SR 434 (Forest City Road) by 2001, and the building of a new southbound off-ramp to U.S. 17 & 92 at the eastern terminus. Sound walls were also erected along the arterial west of Interstate 4.
Work began in Winter 2007 on the first phase of the John Land Apopka Expressway. The six-mile extension of SR 414 west from OBT to SR 429 (Daniel Webster Western Beltway) was named after Apopka's mayor of 50 years, John Land. The eastern section, from Ocoee Apopka Road (CR 437A) to U.S. 441 (OBT) opened to traffic on May 15, 2009.
Phase two of the Apopka bypass extended the toll road west from a temporary at-grade end with Ocoee Apopka Road northwest to U.S. 441 (OBT) at Plymouth. This section was incorporated into a realignment of SR 429 (Daniel Webster Western Beltway), in preparation for its northern extension along Wekiva Parkway. The 3.07 mile overlap between SR 414 and 429 opened to traffic on January 19, 2013.
A new half dumbbell interchange (Exit 5) opened along the Apopka Expressway with Marden Road on June 10, 20171 Expected to advance commercial development of area land, an Interchange Justification Report (IJR) for the new ramps was conducted from February 2013 to January 2014. Approved by City Council in September 2015, a Cost Sharing Agreement with the city of Apopka partially funded construction.2
Construction associated with the Ultimate I-4 project redesigns the exchange with SR 414 (Maitland Boulevard) to eliminate traffic lights in both directions. Work also adds connectivity to adjacent Lake Destiny Road to the west, removing signals from Maitland Boulevard there as well. The addition of collector roads on both sides of SR 414 coincides with new ramps to Keller Road and Maitland Summit Boulevard, with the Maitland Boulevard mainline elevated to eliminate at-grade intersections.
