Lake/Orange County Connector

PD&E Study

Background Information

The Central Florida Expressway Authority is preparing to start a Feasibility, Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study for the Lake/Orange County Connector. The study will take a fresh look at previously studied alignment alternatives seeking to promote regional connectivity via a limited access facility.

CFX will be providing more information on this study once it gets underway. Public involvement and intergovernmental coordination will be a crucial part of this study.

What is a PD&E Study?

A Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study is the formal process that transportation entities, such as CFX and FDOT, use to ensure that consideration is given to engineering design, project costs, environmental and social impacts and public input in the development of major transportation projects.

The basic steps of a PD&E Study include data collection, development and analysis of the alternatives, development of project documents and final approval. Public involvement is a very important part of the PD&E Study process.
