County Reviews SR 46A Plans

Before committing any money to a State Road 46A-Interstate 4 interchange feasibility study, Seminole County will investigate and review studies and plans for the proposed project.

In a work session Monday, the county commission assigned the planning staff to review the county comprehensive land use plan and the Orlando urban area transportation survey for future plans for the interchange and surrounding areas.

A State Department Transportation official, meeting with the county and local officials, said the department's long-range plans call for an interchange at the site by 1990.

Local developer Dan Rathel, a development consultant for Paulucci Enterprises for Duluth, Minn., last week requested the commission participate in funding a $6,000 feasibility study on the project.

Rathel is part owner of a 200-acre undeveloped industrial park at the intersection. He told the board the developers would donate a portion of the land needed for a right-of-way on the project.

W.T. Fish, a state transportation engineer, said he didn't have any estimate on what the interchange could cost.

Altamonte Springs Mayor Norman Floyd, also attending the work session, said priorities should be given to up-grading interchanges at the State Road 436 and 434 before building an interchange at SR 46A.
