Construction near OIA prompts traffic changes

- If you are leaving  Orlando International Airport and plan to use the Jeff Fuqua Blvd. southern access road wihch connects to State Road 417, you will soon see some changes in traffic patterns.

The $3.1 billion Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) approved by the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority board is taking shape at OIA.  As part of the construction, a new route will take travelers on a sky bridge overlooking the future Intermodal Terminal Facility (ITF) and South Airport Automated People Mover Complex. The new roadway is scheduled to open to traffic on June 8, 2016.

The multi-year plan of major capital projects establishes target years for implementation of projects based on expected annual passengers, as well as establishing options for funding. The program of investment and improvement is linked to GOAA’s strategic goals and projects are developed from the Authority’s Master Plan process.

The improvement plans include projects to enhance the existing North Terminal Complex, construction of a new South Airport Automated People Mover Complex which will connect to a new $1.8 billion South Terminal Complex, and construction of the Intermodal Terminal Facility which will connect OIA to a high speed train to Miami and a possible extension of SunRail.
