During a meeting on Wednesday evening, the Central Florida Tourism Oversight District (CFTOD) Board of Supervisors will discuss and likely adopt their proposed budget for fiscal year 2024. The proposed budget includes a $3.1 million cut to roadway repairs and maintenance around Walt Disney World.
The budget notes “Repairs and maintenance services decreased due to option to due [sic] less paving rehab.” The District budgeted $18.3 million and spent $16.6 million for roadway repairs and maintenance in FY 2023. They propose a budget of $13.4 million for FY 2024.
The roadways owned by CFTOD include World Drive, which has been undergoing a years-long update to improve traffic around Magic Kingdom. Other affected roadways could include Buena Vista Drive, EPCOT Center Drive, Osceola Parkway, and Western Way.
The cut budget wouldn’t necessarily mean significant problems for the roads, unless serious issues arise.
The CFTOD Board met at 5:05 p.m. on Wednesday, September 13 to discuss the tentative budget, and it will go to a final vote on September 27.
