A year after construction began on the much anticipated Poinciana Parkway, aerials reveal some impressive progress along this massive $75 million project. An expansive two phase plan, this new expressway will alleviate traffic in and out of Osceola County providing locals with a faster less stressful daily commute while meeting the needs for the projected growth of this bustling Central Florida region.
Headed by the Osceola County Expressway Authority, the Poinciana Parkway project awarded the contract for this historic initiative to local Jr. Davis Construction and UIG Poinciana Parkway LLC. Leaving room for expansion, the Poinciana Parkway will initially be a two-lane toll road with maximum speeds of 70 mph. With a target completion of May 2016, phase one of Poinciana Parkway will begin at 17-92 and end at Marigold Ave while phase two will pick up at the end of Marigold Ave connecting to Cypress Parkway. This second phase is anticipated to be complete in early 2017.
Osceola County Expressway Authority’s master plan intends on using the Poinciana Parkway as the initial segment to create a belt-way around South Osceola County connecting with I-4, US-192, Osceola Parkway and Florida’s Turnpike.
With some influential movers and shakers, Osceola County and the Osceola County Expressway Authority have grand plans in the works. With traditional and 55-plus AV Homes communities located in Kissimmee, Florida, Waterview, Bellalago and Solivita residents will enjoy being so easily connected to the greater Central Florida via the Poinciana Parkway.
