The PD&E Study limits are from east of I-4 (Hope Road) to Maitland Avenue (CR 427), a distance of approximately 1.2 miles. The study will evaluate the feasibility of widening Maitland Boulevard from a four lane roadway to a six lane divided urban roadway and will include evaluation of improvements such as bicycle lanes and sidewalks.

Need for the Project
The need to widen Maitland Boulevard is supported by many factors:
- Maitland Boulevard serves as an important connection between I-4 and US 17-92.
- Projected traffic volumes are expected to exceed the maximum service volume in 2025.
- The proposed roadway widening will improve traffic flow on Maitland Boulevard and help to relieve traffic congestion.
- Maitland Boulevard east of I-4 serves as a vital route for east-west regional traffic in north Orange and south Seminole Counties. Regional traffic uses Maitland Boulevard to link to US 17/92 which provides connections to roadways like Horatio Avenue/Howell Branch Road to access SR 436 and points east.
- This project is consistent with METROPLAN Orlando's 2030 Long Range Transportation Plan and the City of Maitland's Comprehensive Development Plan.
