THE LAKE/ORANGE CONNECTOR STUDY
A public meeting for the Lake/Orange County Connector Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study was held July 29 at the Clermont Arts & Recreation Center. Nearly 100 people attended to see displays of the preferred alternative, ask questions, view a presentation, and voice their thoughts on the potential expressway between US 27 in Lake County and SR 429 in Orange County. 

Over the course of the study, which began in March 2018, CFX engaged the public and elicited input through six advisory group meetings, three public meetings and numerous stakeholder meetings. The study team is scheduled to present the study to the CFX Governing Board later this year. 
NORTHEAST CONNECTOR STUDY FINDING ACCEPTED
Glenn Pressimone, CFX Chief of Infrastructure and Ralph Bove of Volkert, Inc., presented on the Concept, Feasibility and Mobility Study of the Northeast Connector Expressway Extension at CFX's August Board meeting. CFX began the study in February 2018, with the purpose of addressing future transportation demand and mobility in eastern Orange and Osceola counties. The study identified 12 potential corridor alignment alternatives for an extension running north-south between SR 50 in Orange County and US 192 in Osceola County. The Board accepted the study findings and will revisit them periodically as the area changes. Read more about the study here .
