& Environment (PD&E) Study:
Northeast Connector Expressway Phase 1
The Northeast Connector Expressway Phase 1 PD&E Study is evaluating a new 4-mile expressway connection between Nova Road and the proposed Osceola Parkway Extension in Osceola County. This new expressway, identified in the CFX 2040 Master Plan, would also provide a north-south connection with three major regional corridors identified in the Governor’s East Central Florida Corridors Task Force recommendations.
The goal of this proposed limited-access facility is to enhance north-south mobility and provide connections between existing and future east-west corridors in the study area. The expressway will also improve system linkage and regional connectivity, meet social and economic needs, achieve consistency with local plans, provide multimodal opportunities, and improve safety and evacuation routes.
All factors related to the location and design of the facility are being considered, including transportation needs, financial feasibility, social impacts, economic factors, environmental impacts, engineering analysis, and right-of-way requirements.

This is a Project Development and Environment study, which is an initial phase of determining right-of-way acquisition. Property owners near the proposed transportation project often want to know an agency’s process for buying needed private property.
