I-4 Interchange at CPP


The Central Polk Parkway is proposed as a six-lane, new alignment highway in Polk County that will serve as additional north/south routes in the central Polk County regional transportation network. The 10-mile west leg will extend from State Road (SR) 60 east of Bartow northwesterly to the Polk Parkway (SR 570). The 30-mile east leg will run from SR 60 east of Bartow northerly to Interstate 4 near the Polk/Osceola County line.

The proposed limited access highway will have interchanges and grade separations and requires 350 feet of right of way, or land FDOT needs to acquire. The new highway will complement planned highway and transit improvements already included in Polk Transportation Planning Organization's 2035 Polk Mobility Vision Plan.
