The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) wants you to know about a PD&E study that involves the analysis of several roadway concepts that would provide an enhanced connection to Interstate 4 and the greater Poinciana area. Study area is located in Osceola and Polk Counties and the is generally bound by Cypress Parkway (C.R. 580) to the south, U.S. 192 to the north, I-4 to the west and Poinciana Boulevard to the east. Initial corridor alignments are also under evaluation.
The purpose of the I-4 Poinciana Parkway Connector is to provide an enhanced roadway connection from I-4, or the planned Central Polk Parkway, to the western terminus of the Poinciana Parkway project. This will enhance mobility, improve the overall efficiency of the existing highway network, which will increase safety and promote economic development. The connection to I-4 is part of the Osceola County Expressway Authority (OCX) 2040 Master Plan and is envisioned as a limited access toll facility that would be part of the OCX system. In early 2013, the PD&E Study was adopted in the MetroPlan Orlando 2030 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP).
Two public kick-off meetings will be held in early December 2013: one in the Loughman area and the other in the Poinciana area. A formal notice of the meetings will be posted prior to the event.
