Polk County SunRail Study Virtual Public Workshop

Posted July 11th, 2023

The Florida Department of Transportation invites you to participate in an online Virtual Interactive Workshop for the SunRail Extension Study to Polk County. The workshop will be available 24 hours per day, 7 day per week beginning June 16, 2023, through July 31, 2023. Visit to complete the survey at the end of the virtual public workshop.

FDOT is studying the feasibility and benefits of extending SunRail into
Polk County. The Study examines potential project alternatives, and the
benefits, challenges, and costs associated with a potential extension.
The study is also looking at how an extension could promote economic
development and mobility, as well as potential environmental effects.
The process follows federal guidelines, while coordinating closely with
the Polk Transportation Planning Organization (TPO), local agencies,
municipal partners, and stakeholders.
