Lane Construction Wins $299M Contract for Seminole Expressway/SR 417 Widening Project in Florida

SEMINOLE COUNTY, FL — Lane Construction, the U.S. subsidiary of Webuild Group, has won a $299 million contract to widen the Seminole Expressway/SR 417 in Seminole County, Florida.

The Seminole Expressway/SR 417 is a hurricane evacuation route and a major portion of the eastern beltway around Orlando. This critical corridor provides an alternative to busy Interstate 4 for both commercial and private transportation. The project’s capacity improvements will help drivers move through the corridor more efficiently, providing reliable travel times and enhancing safety.

The project, commissioned by Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise (a district within the Florida Department of Transportation), widens six miles of the Seminole Expressway/SR 417 from four lanes to eight travel lanes — adding two new lanes in each direction — from the Orange County line to north of SR 434. It also includes improvements to the interchange and existing ramp terminal intersections at Aloma/SR 426, Red Bug Lake, and SR 434. Work is expected to begin later this fall and complete by spring of 2029.

The project adds to Lane’s portfolio in Florida, a key market for the company. Lane recently opened all high-speed system-to-system movements and access ramps on Section 8 of the Wekiva Parkway, also in Seminole County.
