IMPORTANT UPDATE AND BACKGROUND: On August 4th, FDOT announced that they would be ‘pausing’ the Northern Turnpike Extension after the Florida Turnpike Enterprise Alternative Corridor Evaluation Study Concluded with no Viable Proposed Corridors.  

Sign the Levy petition opposing the Northern Turnpike Extension. Be sure to share this with your family, neighbors, and friends! 

Write a letter to the editor

Organize locally to pass a “No Build” resolution! The previous “No Build” or “repeal M-CORES” resolutions previously passed by many local governments will not be considered by FDOT.  Local governments must pass new “anti-NTE” resolutions.  Check out this draft resolution you can use. Work with others in your community to spread the word by (1) distributing yard signs and/or bumper stickers to those in harm’s way; (2) reach out to local businesses and groups to build the coalition; and/or (3) lobby local electeds to pass “No Build” city or county resolutions.”  

Note: On December 21st, the Levy Board of County Commissioner passed a ‘No Build’ resolution. If you live in Levy, now is the time to focus on the rest of the municipalities in Levy County by advocating and lobbying for other local governments to follow the example of the Levy Board of County Commissioners.

FDOT’s Northern Turnpike Extension ArcGIS tool:  FDOT’s ETDM (Efficient Transportation Decision Making) website now has info on the Northern Turnpike Extension for Marion, Sumter, and Levy counties showing proposed routes which (no surprise to us) ignore the M-CORES Task Force recommendations.  Take the same link to get to the map/routes (on the left side of the screen look for “view of map” under “Project Detail.”
