The Lane Construction Corporation, the U.S. subsidiary of Webuild Group, has won a $299 million contract to widen the Seminole Expressway/SR 417 in Seminole County, Fla.

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 6 mi. 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. In February, Lane opened all high-speed system-to-system movements and access ramps on Section 8 of the Wekiva Parkway, also in Seminole County, accomplishing the much-needed final link that completes the beltway around Central Florida.

Other active projects in the state include a $218 million contract to increase capacity, mobility, and safety at the interchange of Interstate 4 (I-4) and Sand Lake Road (State Road 482) in Orange County; a $233 million contract to increase capacity, mobility and connectivity on Florida's Turnpike Enterprise in Lake County; and along with its joint- venture partner, a $1 billion multi-year effort to modernize the Westshore Interchange (I-275/SR 60) in Tampa.

Lane also is working on a $357 million contract by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) to rebuild a portion of Tyndall Airforce Base (AFB) in Panama City that will result in more resilient infrastructure to address future climate-change challenges.
