The Vanderbilt Beach Road Extension is designed to be a 6 lane divided road system with a planted median. The County has hired a contractor and is in the design phase of the project which was put on hold in 2008. Plans originally called for bringing Vanderbilt Beach Road to Desoto Boulevard, the western edge of the Estates. Based on the most recent plans, it is likely that Phase 1 of the project will end at 16th Street. If the design is finished and all permits are in place by 2019, the County will select a firm to build the road by 2020.
Collier County has funded $86,670,000 for design, right-of-way acquisition and construction in their FY 2018-2022 budget. Acquisition activities will begin in early 2019.

The study is looking to extend the Poinciana Parkway to CR 532 at the Osceola/Polk County line.
The goals of this proposed 3-mile, limited-access facility include improving the roadway connections from CR 532 to the greater Poinciana area, enhancing mobility of the area’s growing population and economy, relieving congestion on local roads and promoting regional connectivity.
After evaluating the alternatives, the study team proposes to advance Alternative 5A without slip ramps as the preferred alternative. This alternative has the lowest social impacts, and lower natural impacts. This alternative also has the lowest total cost and the highest traffic volume.
A public hearing will be held in the Fall of 2019. Also in the Fall 2019, the final findings will be presented to the CFX Board for their decision.
