FASTLANE GRANT APPLICATION
Central Florida Freight Corridor Multimodal Mobility Enhancement Improvements (US 27 and SR 60), Polk County, FL
FDOT District One has applied for a FASTLANE Grant from USDOT for the Central Florida Freight Corridor Multimodal Mobility Enhancement Improvements project.
The Central Florida Freight Corridor Multimodal Mobility Enhancement Improvements will upgrade a critical freight junction for the State of Florida currently hampered by safety issues and future capacity constraints. This multi-component project enhances and improves multimodal mobility at and around this critical freight junction by modifying an inefficient interchange configuration to a Single Point Urban Interchange (SPUI) at US 27/SR 60, separating the at-grade rail crossing on SR 60 four miles west of the interchange, and widening a 5-mile section of US 27 leading into the interchange from 4 to 6 lanes so as to accommodate the significant increases in truck volume. These improvements will facilitate more efficient movements providing for quicker and safer truck travel, reduce crashes, eliminate train crossing delays, and increase overall capacity where two important freight corridors cross and connect the three largest metropolitan areas of the state, Tampa-Orlando-Miami.
