To provide connectivity between the Western Annexation Area of Port St. Lucie and the northern portion of St. Lucie County, the TPO has completed a study to identify a potential north-south corridor. The goal of the North/Mid County Collector Study is to identify a corridor which provides access to major attractors in the area such as the Treasure Coast Research Park and the St. Lucie County International Airport and which connects the Western Annexation Area of Port St. Lucie to the northern portion of St. Lucie County.
Initially, two alignments were considered for the analysis. The analysis determined the viability of extending the alignments, considered the environmental impacts of the alignments, and provided a comparison between no build and build conditions. The selection of a proposed alignment will help to reserve rights-of-way for the future corridor. The study also included the consideration of potential multimodal facilities along the corridor.
