County Road 470 / County Road 48 and C-470

A corridor connecting four Strategic Intermodal System facilities (SR 44, I-75, CSX S-Line and Florida's Turnpike) as well as US 301 and US 27, the corridor has been studied for widening to four lanes and has been targeted by both counties and Wildwood and Leesburg as an economic development corridor. Lake County has designed a portion from the Sumter County Line to just east of US 27. Wildwood and Sumter County executed in 2010 a DRI Proportionate Share Agreement that obligates the Landstone DRI to building a portion of C-470 from CR 501 to the western ramps of Florida's Turnpike. The corridor is the subject of a state TRIP grant award for a new bridge over Florida's Turnpike to accommodate the two additional needed lanes.
