I-4 Poinciana Parkway Connector
Project Development & Environment (PD&E) Study
One of the main components of the PD&E Study is the Public Involvement Program. This is set in place to inform and involve all interested parties in the development of the planned project. The program will extend through the entire PD&E Study period with various methods to involve the community and receive feedback. As the study progresses, this public feedback will be important to the development of decisions for the study. You are encouraged to get involved in the project by regularly visiting the project website, attending public meetings, and joining the Project Mailing List to receive notices of events and other project specific information.

The third APAG Meeting for this study was held:
Wednesday, December 9, 2015, from
The meeting was held to present the results of the corridor analysis and evaluation known as the Alternative Corridor Evaluation (ACE) process and to obtain comments on the corridors that were recommended for further evaluation. Information presented at the meeting is available on the Documents and Publications page of this website.
NOVEMBER 2015 PROJECT UPDATE
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is finalizing the planning-level analysis for the project. The planning-level evaluations followed the FDOT’s Alternatives Corridor Evaluation (ACE) process, which served to screen initial alternative options and to identify reasonable alternatives to be carried forward into the Project Development and Environment, or PD&E, Study phase. Initially, 7 alternative corridors were developed, screened and presented to the public, stakeholders and various governmental and environmental agencies. As a result of this input and significant analysis, two corridor alternatives (Corridor 2A and Corridor 3) were recommended by FDOT to be carried forward into the PD&E Study phase for additional analysis. Both the methodology for the ACE process and the ACE Report are available on the Documents and Publications section of the website.
Pending FHWA approval (as lead agency for the project), the FDOT will conduct an Alternatives Public Meeting. Please click here to be added to the mailing list, so you will be notified in advance of the meeting.
