State Road 538 (Poinciana Parkway) Widening from Ronald Reagan Parkway to CR 580/Cypress Parkway

In February 2021, CFX began widening SR 538/Poinciana Parkway to create a divided four lane expressway from Ronald Reagan Parkway to CR 580/Cypress Parkway. This 7-mile widening is expected to improve traffic flow and operations in the area.

This project includes four proposed sound walls; re-aligning the intersection with CR 580/Cypress Parkway at Solivita Boulevard; building a second bridge over the Reedy Creek Mitigation Bank; building new bridges at Marigold Avenue and KOA street; and two new ramps at the existing interchange with Marigold Avenue.
