Located in Orange County, Pine Hills is situated only a few miles west of Orlando’s major business and tourism centers, which allows residents to travel with ease to surrounding areas like downtown Orlando, Maitland, International Drive, Universal Orlando, and Walt Disney World.
If you live in the Pine Hills area, you are most likely familiar with some of the area’s most frequently traveled roadways, some of which may even be a part of your daily commute.
Some of the major roadways and intersections in Pine Hills include:
- Colonial Drive / SR 50
- Hiawassee Road / CR 435
- East-West Expressway / SR 408
- Pine Hills / CR 431
- Mercy Drive
- Powers Drive
- Silver Star Road / SR 438/418
- The intersection of Pine Hills Road and Silver Star Road**
- The intersection of North Lane and Powers Drive
As many Pine Hills residents can attest, each of these roadways can quickly become the source of daily travel frustrations and unfavorable traffic conditions. Moreover, the Pine Hills community does not offer a bicycle or pedestrian-friendly atmosphere, which has been a long-standing concern for residents of the area. Cyclists and pedestrians often cross as many as six traffic lanes in an effort to reach the grocery store or other businesses. In fact, a 2006 study by the Transportation Planning Division named Pine Hills Road as a “hot spot” due to 9 pedestrian and bicycle crashes.
** The intersection of Silver Star and Pine Hills Road is the gateway to the Pine Hills community. Traffic congestion, poorly maintained businesses and vacant properties have created many transportation and travel issues that are currently being addressed.
