Simple a Poll question on the worst intersection in Orlando for traffic. If your answer isn't on the list, please state it


I chose East Colonial and Alafaya Trail. That intersection is the absolute pits during rush hour. The traffic coming from Downtown Orlando is just downright horrible and backs up as far as the eye can see. East Colonial should have been widened a LONG time ago.

Alafaya seems to do ok though. But man East Colonial coming from Downtown is torture all the way out to Bithlo

E. Colonial and the strip from Orange to Magnolia. I would consider it one big intersection since it's basically the northbound and southbound split up.

I voted for the intersection of 436/Semoran and 50/Colonial.
I think it will be much better when the construction is completed, but before the construction and during the construction it is really bad.

Alafaya and Colonial is often very busy and given the area and how people drive, it is also very dangerous.

Two others that are not listed that are insanely busy and deadly are Semoran and Curry Ford, and Kirkman and Conroy.

I went with Hiawassee and 50...for now. It's under construction and a mess.

When that's done I'll go with 436/Semoran and 50/Colonial. Hopefully the changes they are making there will improve it.

E. Colonial at Alafaya is terrible and why is this road so damn ugly? It has to be one of the most ugliest strips of commerce in the entire state of Florida! I can't even compare anything like it in south Florida!

Are you referring to East Colonial from about Semoran to Alafaya? If so, I agree, it really is hideous.

Wait, the poll question says most traffic area and the threat is titled worsrt. In that case WORST would be COLONIAL! Up and down due to construction and it is already crowded. Most Traffic OBT/Sand Lake. Even when it is not rush hour...SMH its packed

I agree, but I think 436 north of 50 to I-4 is the ugliest strech of a main road in metro Orlando, Or west 50 in pine hills.. 50 from rouse to 419 isn't that bad, a lot of new developments made it look nicer, there are many streches of road that are much uglier. but from 436 to rouse its pretty damn ugly.

i have to agree with you on that. but i think it will be a lot nicer when the construction is completed, which at the rate its going it will be done in the year 2157
