Proposed New Interchanges in Lake and Sumter Counties (Central Florida)
Locations for two new Turnpike SunPass©-only interchanges serving motorists in Central Florida have been identified.
The first interchange would be located in Lake County near milepost 279 (north of the existing Clermont/SR 50 interchange) and would serve the rapidly growing Minneola area.
The second interchange would be located in Sumter County near milepost 300 at CR 468 (south of the Wildwood/US 301 interchange), and would serve The Villages/Lady Lake region.
Florida's Turnpike Enterprise has no funding identified for either of these projects and all right-of-way and construction funding must be committed by private developers. Construction schedules for both projects are dependent on funding agreements that have not yet been developed; however, preliminary the engineering and environmental studies being conducted by the developers are underway or nearly complete. Because the projects would be funded by the developers, the interchanges are not included in the Turnpike’s five-year work program and no timeline for construction has been established.

TOLL 417 -- THE SEMINOLE EXPRESSWAY WIDENING
A Project Development and Environment Study began in 2006 was completed in 2007 to assess needs for the widening of the Seminole Expressway. Initial plans call for interim widening the Seminole from four to six lanes between Aloma and SR 434, with an ultimate eight-lane configuration.
Due to a lack of funding, the construction of the interim widening project has been delayed and currently falls outside the ten year work program.
