New Independence Parkway

Avalon Road (CR 545) to the Lake County line


Orange County has initiated the Design of New Independence Parkway from Avalon Road (CR 545) to the Lake County line in order to align with Lake County’s planned road from US 27 called Wellness Way. The New Independence Parkway extension is being planned as a four-lane divided roadway with pedestrian and bicycle facilities, stormwater treatment, roadway lighting and landscaping within the study corridor. The limits of this project are from approximately 600 feet west of Avalon Road to the Orange/Lake County line, approximately 1 mile.


To support increased traffic demands due to the future developments within Orange County’s Horizon West and Lake County’s Wellness Way Sector Plan.


Design is anticipated to be completed in the Fall of 2024.
