A cross-state highway between U.S. 19 at Weeki Wachee and U.S. 1 near Titusville, Florida 50 links the Orlando area with Brooksville, Clermont, and the Space Coast. Colonial Drive through Orlando is a busy east-west arterial, as is Florida 50 between Weeki Wachee and Brooksville.
North Apopka-Vineland Road southbound at junction Florida 50 (West Colonial Drive) near Pine Hills and Orlo Vista. Florida 50 exists as a busy commercial arterial through this stretch. Additionally the state road carries traffic westward to Good Homes Road for Florida 408 Toll and the connection to South Apopka-Vineland Road. Plans exist to alleviate some of this traffic by connecting the split Apopka-Vineland Roads with a new highway south from this intersection. Photo taken 11/05/06.
