Suncoast 2 Florida's Turnpike

The Suncoast Parkway 2 is a four-lane toll facility that extends the existing Suncoast Parkway northward for 13 miles from US 98 to SR 44 in Lecanto. The project includes:

  • Constructing full interchanges at US 98 and W. Cardinal Street and a partial interchange at SR 44
  • One wildlife corridor and three wildlife culverts
  • 15 new bridges
  • Two all-electronic tolling gantries and equipment buildings
  • Related drainage, lighting, highway signing, traffic signalization, guardrail and sidewalk
  • The Suncoast Trail, part of Florida's Statewide Greenways and Trails System, will be extended to SR 44 and a pedestrian overpass constructed over US 98
Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise is constructing the Suncoast Parkway 2. The cost for this project is approximately $134 million. Work began in February 2018 and is expected to be completed in 2022. Funding is entirely based on Turnpike toll and concessions revenue.
