The Suncoast Parkway 2 (SR 589) project is divided into three (3) phases.
Phase 1 has completed construction and opened in February 2022. This phase begins at US 98 and ends at SR 44 in Lecanto. It is 13 miles long and included fully directional interchanges at US 98 and West Cardinal Street, as well as a partial interchange at SR 44 with movements to and from the south only.
Phase 2 will extend Suncoast Parkway northward from SR 44 to CR 486, West Norvell Bryant Highway. It is approximately three miles long and includes the completion of the diamond interchange at SR 44, as well as a partial interchange at CR 486. Phase 2 is currently scheduled to begin construction mid-2023.
Phase 3 of Suncoast Parkway 2 (SR 589), the topic of tonight’s presentation, has been divided into two (2) segments. Segment 3A will extend SR 589 from CR 486 to CR 495, approximately five miles. This segment is undergoing final design and is scheduled to begin construction in 2025. Segment 3B will be the final extension of SR 589 from CR 495 to US 19 at Red Level and is also scheduled to begin construction in late 2025. The design team is currently reviewing preliminary alignment and interchange alternatives for this segment. The project also includes a multi-use recreational trail along the west side of the roadway that will be an extension of the existing multi-use trail along Phase 2 of Suncoast Parkway 2.
