Commissioner S. Scott Boyd Opens Wildwood
Area Road Network
New Transportation Corridor in District 1 Opens to Public on Feb. 27

ORLANDO—Feb. 26, 2014—Tomorrow morning, Commissioner S. Scott Boyd will join with project developers, managers and staff to officially open the much-anticipated Wildwood Area Road Network.

“I’m thrilled to see how effectively this project has been managed to a timely completion and most importantly, what a positive impact it will have on citizens who will now be able to take advantage of improved connectivity in the area,” said Orange County Commissioner S. Scott Boyd.

The Wildwood Area Road Network is a planned partnership project that broke ground on March 12, 2012, constructing a new four-lane divided urban roadway to connect International Drive and Palm Parkway. The new roadway is named Fenton Street and includes a 420-foot long bridge over Interstate 4.

The project also features improvements such as an extension of Regency Village Drive to Fenton Street, two new signals at the intersections of International Drive and Palm Parkway, and sidewalks on both sides of the road.

“Transportation is such a hot topic in my district, I am always appreciative when I can work collaboratively with the private sector and Orange County staff to offer citizens access to new transportation solutions that provide additional commuter options,” said Boyd.

Commissioner Boyd and the project team will officially open the roadway at 9 a.m., and it will be open for public travel immediately following.
