New FTE Interchange with Potential $1 Billion Economic Impact Will Ease Orlando Commutes

Orlando Sentinel reports, “Completion of a new Florida’s Turnpike interchange in [Minneola] south Lake County brings the promise of faster commutes into Orlando and another wave of residential development into burgeoning bedroom communities.” The $29 million interchange, which opened over the weekend, has the potential to create about 7,000 jobs and as much as a $1 billion impact in the region,” the Lake County Commission Chairman tells the newspaper.
