Traveling 15.79 miles overall, Florida State Road 414 bypasses central Apopka and U.S. 441 (Orange Blossom Trail) along the John Land Apopka Expressway. The toll road east connects with U.S. 441 / Orange Blossom Trail (OBT), where SR 414 transitions onto Maitland Boulevard near Lockhart. Maitland Boulevard extends the state road east from OBT along a controlled access arterial to SR 434 (Forest City Road), and then an expressway to Interstate 4 in the city of Maitland. East of I-4, Maitland Boulevard is an arterial to U.S. 17/92 (Orlando Avenue).
Florida State Road 414 Guides
Previous upgrades to the six lane arterial along Maitland Boulevard included construction of a single point urban interchange (SPUI) with SR 434 (Forest City Road) by 2001, and the addition of a new southbound off-ramp to U.S. 17/92 at the east end of SR 414. 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 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 the northern extension of SR 429 along Wekiva Parkway. The 3.03 mile long overlap between SR 414/429 opened to traffic on January 19, 2013.
A half dumbbell interchange (Exit 5) opened along the Apopka Expressway with Marden Road on June 10, 2017.1 Expected to advance commercial development of area land, an Interchange Justification Report (IJR) for the new exchange 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 redesigned the exchange with SR 414 (Maitland Boulevard) to eliminate traffic lights in both directions. Work also added 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 coincided with the addition of new ramps to Keller Road and Maitland Summit Boulevard, while the Maitland Boulevard mainline was elevated to eliminate at-grade intersections.
