The Daniel Webster Western Beltway extends nearly 40 miles from US Highway 441 in Apopka south to Interstate 4 in Osceola County, providing West Orange and Osceola counties with an alternate north-south route to heavily traveled Interstate 4. The Western Beltway also greatly enhances access to the Florida’s Turnpike and makes it easier to get to the attractions area.
State Road 429, a limited access toll road, was developed in partnership between the Expressway Authority and the Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise. The roadway was dedicated in honor of State Senator Daniel Webster, who served in the Florida Legislature from 1981-2008 and was instrumental in ensuring the funding of SR 429 and helping to see the project to fruition.
The roadway features the first mainline toll plaza built with Express Lanes by the agency. Under the new design, E-PASS customers can pay their tolls at the posted highway speeds, while cash customers go through more conventional toll lanes.
