During Preliminary Design for the Phase 1 Interconnect, five routes are being evaluated. The Phase 1 Interconnect begins at the terminus of the Authority’s Regional Transmission Main in DeSoto County on US 17 (Segment 1) and ends about six miles to the south of the City of Punta Gorda’s Shell Creek Water Treatment Plant. All five potential routes cross Shell Creek.

After a lengthy evaluation process that considered factors including constructability, environmental impacts, public safety and cost, the final route was selected. Refer to the ‘Selected Route‘ section for details.
