Project Description

Osceola County is evaluating improving a 3.9-mile segment of Neptune Road, from Partin Settlement Road to US 192. This Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study will evaluate various alternative improvements and their impacts to the physical, natural, social, and cultural environments.

Preferred Alternative

The results of evaluating alternatives for improving Neptune Road for the following segments were presented at the Alternatives Public Information Meeting on April 11, 2019.

Partin Settlement Road to Old Canoe Creek Road

        • Alternative 1 (North) and
        • Alternative 2 (South)

Old Canoe Creek Road to US 192

        • Alternative A (4-lane) and
        • Alternative B (5-lane)

Following the Alternatives Public Information Meeting, the recommended preferred alternative was identified as a combination of Alternative 1 (North) and Alternative B (5-lane), with both segments to be modified to reduce impacts and right-of-way costs.

Reasons for selecting Alternative 1 (North) included:

        • Less relocations
        • Lower construction costs
        • Estimated lower right-of-way costs

Reason for selecting Alternative B (5-Lane) was:

        • Better operation

The results of the Alternatives Public Information Meeting and the recommended preferred alternative were presented to the Osceola County Board of County Commissioners on May 13, 2019. A copy of that presentation can be downloaded below.
