Concept, Feasibility &

Mobility Studies

Background Information

In April 2017, CFX began conducting concept, feasibility and mobility studies on the unbuilt Osceola County Expressway Authority (OCX) Master Plan projects. The goal is to determine which, if any, meet CFX requirements for viability and funding. Following are brief summaries of the four studies being undertaken, as well as an overall project schedule.

Poinciana Parkway Extension / I-4 Connector

The study corridor of the proposed Poinciana Parkway Extension / I-4 Connector generally begins at the southern terminus of the existing Poinciana Parkway at Cypress Parkway, extends along the existing Poinciana Parkway alignment to the Osceola / Polk County line and then extends in a general north / northwest direction to connect with Interstate-4 (I-4). The study corridor encompasses portions of both Osceola and Polk Counties and includes a proposed interchange with I-4. The goals of this proposed new limited-access facility include improving the roadway connection from I-4 to the greater Poinciana area, enhancing mobility of the area’s growing population and economy, relieving congestion on local roads, providing for the incorporation of transit options, and promoting regional connectivity.

Southport Connector Expressway

The study corridor of the proposed Southport Connector Expressway generally begins at the current southern terminus of the Poinciana Parkway at Cypress Parkway and extends eastward for approximately 13 miles to Florida’s Turnpike. The study corridor encompasses portions of both Osceola and Polk Counties. The goals of this proposed new limited-access facility include improving the roadway connection from the greater Poinciana area to Florida’s Turnpike, enhancing mobility of the area’s growing population and economy, relieving congestion on local roads, providing for the incorporation of transit options, and promoting regional connectivity.

Northeast Connector Expressway

The study corridor of the proposed Northeast Connector Expressway extends from the proposed terminus of the Southport Connector Expressway at Florida’s Turnpike northeast to the vicinity of the Osceola / Orange County line for a distance of approximately 25 miles. The study includes a proposed interchange with Florida’s Turnpike. The Northeast Connector Expressway has been known as the ‘Southport Connector East’ and the ‘SR 417 Southern Extension’ in previous studies and discussions. The goals of this proposed new limited-access facility include providing a connection from Florida’s Turnpike to US 192 and the Osceola Parkway Extension, enhancing mobility of the area’s growing population and economy, relieving congestion on local roads, providing for the incorporation of transit options, and promoting regional connectivity.

Osceola Parkway Extension

The study corridor of the proposed Osceola Parkway Extension begins approximately one mile west of the Boggy Creek Road and Osceola Parkway intersection and extends eastward along the Orange / Osceola County line for approximately 6 miles before turning south into Osceola County to meet the northern terminus of the proposed Northeast Connector Expressway. The project also includes a potential north/south segment linking to SR 417 in the general vicinity of the Boggy Creek Road interchange. The goals of this proposed new limited-access facility include providing for additional east-west capacity within the project area, enhancing mobility of the area’s growing population and economy, relieving congestion on local roads, providing for the incorporation of transit options, and promoting regional connectivity.
