About the Study

Project Overview

The US 192 Alternatives Analysis Project is focused on collaboratively exploring and recommending the role that transportation should play in the Osceola and Kissimmee Corridors. At its completion, this US 192 Alternatives Analysis effort will provide a clear understanding of transportation needs in the Study Area, the potential solutions to those needs and the role transportation improvements can play in supporting the Study Area communities. The Alternatives Analysis will produce alternative solutions as well as system performance statistics upon which the most appropriate alternative will be recommended and advanced for informed decision-making. Upon reaching a local consensus the selected, preferred alternative will be advanced for further development, funding and implementation.

The US 192 Alternatives Analysis Study Area is comprised of an east-west corridor, labeled the Osceola Corridor and a north-south corridor, labeled the Kissimmee Corridor. The Osceola Corridor is centered on US 192 and traverses Lake, Orange and Osceola counties. From the west, the Corridor begins at an interchange with US 27 in Lake County, just north of the Polk County line. From there, the Corridor continues east until arriving at the interchange with Florida's Turnpike. The Osceola Corridor extends a total of approximately 23 miles.

The Kissimmee Corridor is generally identified as SR 500 (Orange Blossom Trail/US 441/US 17/92) and SR 600 (John Young Parkway) from the planned Osceola Parkway SunRail Station (opening 2016) to Pleasant Hill Road.

What is an Alternatives Analysis (AA)?

An Alternatives Analysis (AA) is a process governed by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) that is used to identify and evaluate a range of transportation improvements within a corridor. Although the AA is a Federal process, the projectís goals and evaluation measures are developed by local stakeholders through community input.

The AA is the first step in developing and implementing transit projects. The outcome of the AA is a Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA), or set of improvements, to be advanced for focused study and development.

For more information, view the FTA's Alternatives Analysis Fact Sheet (Adobe PDF).

US DOT, EPA and HUD jointly developed six Livability Principles that are being used to guide the development and evaluation of transportation alternatives as part of the US 192 AA. The six principles are as follows:

  • Promote more transportation choices
  • Promote equitable, affordable housing
  • Enhance economic competitiveness
  • Support existing communities
  • Coordinate and leverage Federal policies and investment
  • Value communities and neighborhoods.

Study Schedule

The US 192 AA study began in March 1, 2012 and will last approximately 18 months. The detailed project schedule is shown below. Key milestones include four public meetings, the first of which is an open house scheduled for June 2012.
