The Central Florida Expressway Authority (CFX) is holding a public hearing for the Poinciana Parkway Extension Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study. The study will determine if a limited access facility between the north end of Poinciana Parkway to County Road 532 at the Osceola County/Polk County line is viable and fundable in accordance with CFX policies and procedures.
The overall goals of the Poinciana Parkway Extension are to provide improved connections between area roads; accommodate anticipated transportation demand; provide consistency with local and regional plans; support economic viability and job creation; support intermodal opportunities; and enhance evacuation and emergency services.
