Description

A newspaper article published in The Oviedo Voice on January 2, 2003. According to the article, city officials from Oviedo and Winter Springs were lobbying the Central Florida Expressway Authority to continue offering discounted tolls to drivers using the Central Florida GreeneWay (Florida State Road 417). The Florida Turnpike Enterprise conducted a study to determine how many residents were using SR 417 to travel between Oviedo and Winter Springs. The study found that fewer than 200 riders used the bypass daily. However, the number may be inaccurate, as only drivers using the Sun-Pass (formerly called the E-Pass) were counted.
