The Kickoff Public Meetings will be held in an open house format and will present identical information. Community members may come at any point within the advertised time to view the exhibits, to ask questions of study staff and to provide comments. A looping audio visual presentation providing an overview of the study corridors will be available for viewing throughout the meetings.
The agency is taking a fresh look at four corridors that were previously studied to determine if they are viable and fundable in accordance with CFX policies and procedures. The corridors are in Osceola County, with small portions in Orange and Polk Counties.
The four corridors are: the Poinciana Parkway Extension / I-4 Connector, the Southport Connector Expressway, the Northeast Connector Expressway and the Osceola Parkway Extension.
As part of an interlocal agreement, CFX has incorporated portions of the Osceola County Expressway Authority (OCX) 2040 Master Plan into the CFX 2040 Master Plan. CFX began the concept studies in April 2017 and is scheduled to complete them in 12 months.
The overall goals of these study corridors are to: improve roadway connections from I-4/SR 429 to Florida’s Turnpike, to US 192, and to SR 417; provide additional traffic capacity within the study area; enhance mobility of the area’s growing population and economy; reduce congestion and delays on local roads by providing a new limited-access transportation option; provide for the incorporation of transit options; and promote regional connectivity.
The work includes the evaluation and documentation of the physical, natural, social and cultural environment within the corridors and the potential impacts associated with the various mobility alternatives. Transportation demands for each corridor will be determined and a range of transportation mobility options and programs will be developed to adequately meet the future demands. Public involvement and interagency coordination are an integral part of the assessment process, and multiple opportunities for participation are being provided.
