I-4 Interchange at CPP



At the Polk Transportation Planning Organization meeting on December 10, 2015, Florida Department of Transportation District One Secretary Billy L. Hattaway announced cancellation of any further work on the Central Polk Parkway projects. The Central Polk Parkway, proposed as a six-lane, new alignment highway in Polk County, would have added an additional north/south route in the central Polk County regional transportation network. The 10-mile west leg, as originally proposed, extended from State Road (SR) 60 east of Bartow northwesterly to the Polk Parkway (SR 570). The 30-mile east leg as proposed would have extended from SR 60 east of Bartow northerly to Interstate 4 near the Polk/Osceola County line.  


The current Project Development and Environment study for the I-4 Interchange with the Central Polk Parkway, along with the seven ongoing and one planned design projects, are cancelled because there are insufficient funds to advance them, and traffic demand does not support tolling the facility. The funds included in the department’s five-year work program for design and acquisition of right-of-way will go towards other projects.
