Concept, Feasibility &

Mobility Studies:

Southport Connector Expressway

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. We value your input. Public involvement and interagency coordination are an integral part of the assessment process, and multiple opportunities for participation are being provided. Following are a brief summary of this study being undertaken, as well as section study exhibits, documents and other information.

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.
