Project Area

Environment

This project is consistent with the Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study for the construction of the Suncoast Parkway (SR 589) from U.S. 98 in Hernando County to U.S. 19/98 in Citrus County, Florida. Approval of this study is documented in the State Environmental Impact Report SEIR that was signed on February 2, 1998.

Innovation

FTE is at the forefront of planning for a safer, more efficient, and technologically advanced transportation system for the future. FTE continually seeks opportunities to integrate emerging transportation technologies that can help reduce congestion, create mobility choices, minimize environmental impacts and improve safety. FTE also recognizes that connected and automated vehicle (CAV) technologies hold unprecedented opportunities for enhancing mobility and increasing safety on our roadways.

If you have an idea for a technology or innovation that you would like to be considered as part of this study, please reach out to one of the contacts in the Stay Connected section below.

Phase 2 of the Suncoast Parkway 2 (SR 589) will also serve as a pilot project for FTE’s new roadside tolling cabinet approach for toll collection, at the on and off-ramps to SR 44.
