PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA PARKWAY
The Pres. Barack Obama Parkway (formerly Pine Hills Road/Mission Road) project begins at the intersection of Pres. Barack Obama Parkway and Conroy Road and ends 500 feet north of the proposed intersection of Pine Hills Road and Old Winter Garden Road. . The three-mile corridor was named Pres. Barack Obama Parkway to avoid confusion when the corridor intersects Mission Road near Old Winter Garden Road. The roadway is being designed and built in segments as funding becomes available. The roadway will serve as an alternate north/south route to Kirkman Road, John Young Parkway and Interstate 4. When the entire segment of Pres. Barack Obama Parkway is completed, it will be an arterial from US 441 in the Apopka Area to Conroy Road in the Millenia Area. The roadway design is context sensitive, taking into account the mix of Single Family Residential, Multi-Family Residential, Parks, Industrial and a small amount of retail/commercial along the corridor. The roadway design also gives consideration to bicyclists by providing a parallel, multi-use path that links the Shingle Creek Trail, the Pine Hills Trail and ultimately the West Orange Trail..
Phase One (Segments 1, 2 and 3) construction was completed and opened to traffic following a ribbon cutting ceremony held on October 11, 2011. Phase One extended the existing four-lane divided segment of Pres. Barack Obama Parkway for a little over one mile, from just north of Conroy Road to its intersection with the nearly half -mile extension of Metrowest Boulevard also completed in Phase One.
The design and plans preparation for Phase Two (Segment 4) began on March 9, 2012 and is currently underway. Phase Two (Segment 4) is the nearly one-mile extension of the Pres. Barack Obama Parkway from Metrowest Boulevard to Raleigh Street.
Input from local residents and business owners is an important aspect of this project. The project team will meet with Homeowner and Neighborhood Associations located near the project corridor during Summer and Fall of 2012. A public meeting will be held in the Fall of 2012.
