STOP THE PROPOSED TURNPIKE

The Florida Department of Transportation is planning an extension of the existing Suncoast Parkway through Citrus and Marion Counties, to terminate at 301/441 via 326 or 329.

The roadway would run right through the heart of Ocala’s horse country, a 3-billion-dollar industry which provides Marion almost 27k jobs.

The proposed routes also threaten a variety of natural resources, vital conservation lands, agricultural areas, a historic landmark, and our citizen’s homes! Please join us in fighting the Coastal Connector, and just say “NO”!
