Description
Experiencing ~20-30 FPS max regardless of park size or graphics settings during coaster construction mode. When NOT in coaster construction, I can get up to 240 FPS in small, low graphics parks but still drops to 30 when building a coaster.

My test details are as follows (all FPS taken from Steam Overlay):

ON LOWEST SETTINGS (every individual setting on the lowest option):
In my 3k guest park,
I get 55 fps when looking at a populated area.
I get 35 fps anytime I'm in Construction mode of a coaster.
I get 20 fps if I'm also dragging a control point for a track segment.

In my 300 guest park,
I get 230 fps when looking at a populated area.
I get 35 fps anytime I'm in Construction mode of a coaster.
I get 35 fps if I'm also dragging a control point for a track segment.

ON HIGHEST SETTINGS (every individual setting on highest option, except DoF off):
In my 3k guest park,
I get 40 fps when looking at a populated area.
I get 30 fps anytime I'm in Construction mode of a coaster.
I get 20 fps if I'm also dragging a control point for a track segment.

In my 300 guest park,
I get 90 fps when looking at a populated area.
I get 30 fps anytime I'm in Construction mode of a coaster.
I get 30 fps if I'm also dragging a control point for a track segment.

My computer specs:
Processor: Intel i7 5960X
Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth X99
Memory: 64GB
Video card: EVGA GTX 980


Steps to Reproduce
I enter coaster constuction on any coaster in any park and experience a 100-600% decrease in FPS every time.

Do you encounter these performance issues when manipulating certain track sections (or groups of sections)?

A quick video with the frame-rate visible would be useful, so we can see exactly when the drops occur.
