    New road from FL Turnpike to WDW, et al?

    I thought I read a couple years ago a new road is being/is going to be built from the Florida Turnpike to US 192 somewhere west of WDW. Does anyone know about this road, or is it just my imagination?

    P.S. I got this from the FL Dept. of Trans. site about this other major project. Does anyone know if this is an area to avoid now or in the near future (like in October) when DW and I are driving the 1,031 miles to WDW?:

    I-4/US 192 Interchange - Construction of improvements (FM No. 242531). Granite Construction Co. was awarded the $58,856,707 contract August 6. Work began January 3.

    I just got back from my trip there on 5/29/05 and 192 is in fact finished and awesome. We decided this time to stay off grounds at the Nikki Bird Holiday Inn and we were literally less than 5 minutes from the gates of Disney. If you decide to stay off grounds then I highly suggest looking in the area off 192. It is really close to the park. Hope this helps.
