Poinciana Parkway Widening Project
A CFX public virtual meeting was held today at 6:30 pm to provide an update on the 538 toll road widening project.
The 538 toll road widening construction will begin spring 2021 and will be completed fall 2023. The construction includes expanding the toll road from a current 2 lane undivided highway to a 4 lane divided highway (2 lanes in each direction) with a center median.
A new 2 lane southbound bridge will also be constructed next to the current 2 lane bridge over the Reedy creek wildlife crossing area. Most of the construction will not impact traffic on the current two lane road but during ramp construction some disruption and flagging may be necessary. 8’ and 14’ sound walls will be added along the shoulder of the toll road for Poinciana village 2 homes along the route.
The Marigold exit will now become a full diamond interchange for easier entrance and exit.
The intersection of the tollway with Cypress Parkway (CR580) will be moved west from its current location. The southern end of the toll road will now directly align with Solivita Boulevard and Solivita’s Parkway gate. There will be a new completely signalized intersection at Solivita Boulevard/SR538 and Cypress Parkway with full turn lanes.
This project will not trigger any toll increase according to CFX. No toll increase is planned upon completion. The SR538 speed limit will be increased to 65 mph upon completion of the expansion.
CFX says the Poinciana Parkway Extension project remains on schedule with construction to begin next year and completion projected to be in 2023. That project will connect the existing Parkway to CR 532 with an interchange at 17/92. As part of that project CR 532 will be expanded to 4 lanes and improvements to the Champions Gate Interchange will be made
CFX also stated that the Southport Connector project remains in the study phase with more decisions to be made soon
