The Board of County Commissioners approved its biggest investment in transportation infrastructure in the last decade on Monday night by a 4-0 vote.

Approval to refinance the Osceola Parkway will generate approximately $200 million to improve five priority roads, including but not limited to the following:  

 •Simpson Road, from U.S. Highway 192 to Osceola Parkway

•Boggy Creek Road, from Simpson Road to Narcoossee Road

•Bill Beck Boulevard, from Woodcrest to Osceola Parkway

•Poinciana Boulevard, from Pleasant Hill Road to Crescent Lakes Way

•Partin Settlement Road, from Neptune Road to East Lakeshore Boulevard

 These roads were prioritized based on a number of factors, including traffic congestion, the number of accidents, cost feasibility and a connection to Osceola Parkway.
