  2. Overview • PD&E Study has been underway since 2008. The Study is evaluating two corridors (east & west) between (SR 60 and SR 570) and (SR 60 and I-4). • FDOT has held numerous stakeholder and public meetings and coordinated with the TPO throughout the Study. • FDOT has held public hearings seeking public comment on the preferred build alternatives for the east and west corridors. • FDOT is seeking a determination from the Polk TPO that the preferred alternatives are consistent with the Adopted 2035 MVP.

  4. 2035 Mobility Vision Plan • The CPP (east & west) is included in the Needs Plan and is partially funded in the Cost-Feasible portion of the Adopted 2035 MVP as a 6-lane facility. • 2035 MVP identifies the need for additional east-west capacity in the SR 60 corridor between Bartow and Lake Wales. These improvements are identified as unfunded needs in the MVP. • Preferred alternatives provide 6-lanes of east-west capacity between US 17 and US 27 with three direct points of access to SR 60. • 2035 MVP many needs in NE Polk County along US 27 between SR 60 and Interstate 4.
