A major expansion of World Drive near to the Transportation and Ticket Center is now underway.
Crews are working on both sides of World Drive, laying utility pipes and clearing pine trees.
World Drive is one of Walt Disney World's busiest roads, leading to the Magic Kingdom's Transportation and Ticket Center, and passing through to the Contemporary Resort and beyond.
Part of the work will include adding a flyover ramp taking traffic directly from World Drive and bypassing the Magic Kingdom parking plaza for drivers heading towards the Contemporary and other resort area hotels.
In the opposite direction, a flyover ramp will allow traffic heading from the Contemporary Resort side of World Drive to continue on World Drive beyond the Magic Kingdom parking plaza.
Permits were filed back in May 2016 for the project, with completion expected around summer 2018.
