Second APAG Meeting Scheduled to Discuss Poinciana Parkway Southport Connector


Orlando, FL – The progress of the Poinciana Parkway Southport Connector Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study is the subject of an upcoming Agency Project Advisory Group (APAG) meeting hosted by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). This transportation project is a study to evaluate alternatives for a limited access expressway from Pleasant Hill Road to Florida’s Turnpike in Osceola County.

This APAG meeting coordinates with environmental resource agencies having permitting and/or approval authority for the project and with other governmental and non-governmental organizations with an interest in the project.  The purpose of the meeting is to provide an opportunity for the study team and the agencies to work cooperatively to develop a transportation improvement that meets the needs of the area while being a responsible steward of the natural and human environment.

The meeting is scheduled for Thursday, December 11, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Disney Wilderness Preserve Conservation Learning Center, 2700 Scrub Jay Trail, Kissimmee, Florida 34759.
