Suncoast 2 US 98-SR 44-01

Introduction

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
  • Five wildlife crossings
  • 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 (FTE) is constructing the Suncoast Parkway 2. The cost for this project is approximately $135 million. Work began in February 2018. The original contracted completion date is summer 2022; however, the project is ahead of schedule. Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise is currently working towards having the entire roadway opening tentatively in early 2022. Funding is entirely based on FTE’s toll and concessions revenue.
