Connect 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP)
Proposed Amendment for Public Review
The River to Sea TPO is seeking to amend the Connect 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan to reflect updated funding for the Central Florida Commuter Rail System Phase II North Expansion. This project will make needed track modifications to extend SunRail service from the existing northern terminus at the DeBary station north to the DeLand station.
At the time of adoption of Connect 2045 in September of 2020, the SunRail Phase II North Expansion project was not included in the current five-year Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and specifics associated with this project, such as project timing and costs, were not known. Accordingly, the project was referenced in Connect 2045 as an aspirational and unfunded transit project. Since the adoption of the long-range transportation plan, funding details have been identified to support the Phase II North Expansion. The proposed amendment will add this project to the Connect 2045 Cost Feasible Plan.
Materials are provided for public review reflecting the proposed amendment to Connect 2045. Proposed changes in the following Connect 2045 Chapters and Appendix are shown in strike through and underline format:
Chapter 5 – Needs Assessment and Scenario Planning
- Text revisions to the SunRail section on Page 5-4 to reflect the programmed funding
- Map revisions to Figure 5 to depict the location of the future DeLand SunRail Station
Chapter 6 – Transportation Plan
- Revisions to Table 6-9 on Page 6-14 to reflect the funding amount for the SunRail Phase II North Expansion project in the FY 2020/21 – FY 2025/26 TIP
Appendix D – Long Range Transit Element
- Revisions on Page 1 of Long Range Transit Element Table to reflect the funding details for the SunRail Phase II North Expansion project shown in the first row
