About the Study Area


This study will assess the need for better connectivity between Tampa Bay and Jacksonville, two large regions that are not well connected today. An early focus will be on increasing safety and congestion concerns along Interstate 75 north of Wildwood. Initial steps will evaluate operational improvements to I-75 as well as potential extensions of the Suncoast Parkway or Florida's Turnpike to improve connectivity in the southern portion of the study area. The full study will explore a possible new connection between the Suncoast Parkway and I-75 in the Gainesville/Ocala area, as well as enhanced connectivity between Gainesville/Ocala and the Jacksonville area.
