Florida’s Turnpike is constructing the Suncoast Parkway 2, a four-lane toll facility that extends the existing Suncoast Parkway northward for 13 miles from US 98 in Hernando County to SR 44 in Citrus County. The project includes constructing full interchanges at US 98 and West Cardinal Street and a partial interchange at SR 44, one wildlife crossing and four wildlife culverts, 15 new bridges, two all-electronic tolling gantries and equipment buildings, and related drainage, lighting, highway signing, traffic signalization, guardrail and sidewalk. 

The Suncoast Trail, part of Florida’s Statewide Greenways and Trails System, will also be extended from US 98 to SR 44, with a pedestrian overpass constructed over US 98. The cost for this project is approximately $135 million and it is expected to be completed in 2022.
