Overview & History
State Road 538 (Poinciana Parkway) is a key transportation corridor serving the residents of Poinciana in Osceola County, named one of Florida’s fastest-growing areas. The 7.2-mile toll road extends from US 17-92 and Kinny Harmon Road through Osceola County connecting to Cypress Parkway in Polk County. SR 538 provides a critical north-south connection to US 17-92 facilitating access to regional transportation networks, theme parks, and the metro Orlando area.
Originally built by the Osceola County Expressway Authority, SR 538 opened to traffic in 2016 and features all-electronic tolling for enhanced traffic flow and customer convenience. Effective December 31, 2018, CFX assumes all governance, control, and maintenance of the Poinciana Parkway. Based on the state law that created CFX in 2014 as a regional transportation operator, Senate Bill 230 empowered CFX to take over projects in OCX’s Master Plan and assume control of the Poinciana Parkway. CFX will operate the Poinciana Parkway as a non-system project; tolls collected from other CFX expressways do not fund any aspect of the parkway, or vice versa.
CFX leverages emerging technology and expert planning to ensure that drivers enjoy safe, efficient travel whether coming, going or just passing through. The Central Florida expressways share this legacy of connection, as well as history and features unique to each road.
