When will the Project be built?
Before the Project can be built, we must first complete the PD&E Study process and identify a Recommended Alternative, which must be approved by the Board of County Commissioners. Only upon approval will the Project's next steps (Design Phase and right-of-way acquisition) be completed. The schedule for these future steps is unknown at this time. 

Why is this Project being studied?
This Project is being studied to consider roadway system continuity (providing links between areas of the County, Wellness Way, and the Central Florida Expressway), provide additional multimodal options that support economic development (including the Wellness Way Area Plan, a future planned High School, and a future planned Regional Park), and maintain consistency with the Lake/Sumter Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) 2035 Long Range Transportation Plan.
