WMFE reports, “When the five-mile Lake/Orange Expressway is completed in 2026, it will have one mile that’s electrified for charging electric vehicles. Executive Director Laura Kelley of the Central Florida Expressway Authority [CFX] said that pilot program will cost about $10 million,” out of an overall project budget of $460 million. “This is one of many sustainability features on the Lake/Orange Expressway,” Kelley said. “We also believe that this is something that’s worthy of research for the future, really for the future of freight movement.” The article notes that CFX has undertaken the pilot in collaboration with tech developer Evolgy and the ASPIRE engineering research center at Utah State University. Kelley, who is chair-elect of the ASPIRE executive advisory board, and CFX board chair Sean Parks are attending ASPIRE’s annual meeting this week.
