The Osceola County Expressway Authority (OCX) is conducting a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study that is evaluating corridors for the extension of the Osceola Parkway from west of Boggy Creek Road to the proposed Northeast Connector Expressway. The study also includes the Boggy Creek Road/SR 417 Access Road. The purpose of this PD&E Study is to respond to future travel demand, promote system linkage/network connectivity, and enhance overall traffic operations within the study area.
In anticipation of the county’s population growth, community leaders developed a plan for a beltway system of new roadways (see Osceola County Beltway System map) to meet the area’s transportation needs and facilitate traffic flow for residents, visitors, and truckers delivering goods in and around the area. The Osceola Parkway Extension (shown on the County Beltway map in burgundy, and labeled with ) is part of this beltway system.
