Florida 482 Highway Guides
Construction underway in fall 2016 widens four miles of SR 482 from four to six lanes. The $75.8 million project upgrades Sand Lake Road east from International Drive to the overpasses across Florida's Turnpike. Split into three sections, work adds a grade separation with John Young Parkway and ramps to replace the current signalized intersection between the two arterials. Estimated completion for the overall project is spring 2020.1
The I-4 Beyond the Ultimate Project will extend the tolled Express Lanes southward from Kirkman Road to SR 528 (Beachline Expressway). Included in the $800 million project is conversion of the parclo with Sand Lake Road into a diverging diamond interchange (DDI), with the loop ramp from SR 482 west to I-4 west realigned to instead connect with Turkey Lake Road. Project letting is anticipated for July 8, 2019.
