I believe this will only build it to US 17 as from US 17 to SR 60 will get done later.

Then who knows when it will connect to I-4. US 27 through Davenport is a traffic nightmare from US 17-92 to I-4. Thst needs a bypass five years ago.

Would FL-570 not provide a freeway link to I-4 already?

For Lakeland and Auburndale, sure. But it's the Davenport-Celebration-Kissimmee area that's getting the current traffic woes that Roadman is talking about. From this thread, I keep getting this nagging idea of a northern extension of FL-570 from the east end of I-4 to the western terminus of US 192 at US 27, and I'm not so sure how I feel about that.

It was an idea floated around. The former Orlando Orange County Expressway Authority put together the demands of Central Florida residents and proposed the east end of SR 570 to connect with the west end of SR 408 near Oakland, FL.

How they were going to get that being the Green Swamp is in between? Don’t ask me how, as the Green Swamp is the only thing saving I-4 between Lakeland and Davenport from being overdeveloped with homes and more bedroom communities along the many already along all of I-4.

NJRoadfan:
The lack of an option of a north-south road connection between Poinciana Blvd. and US-27 seems to cause traffic woes in the Davenport/Loughman area. You have one choice that isn't I-4 hell.....Lake Wilson Rd. That and somehow US-17-92 is the only crossing of Reedy Creek between I-4 and Pleasant Hill Rd. in Poinciana.
