We are currently working on launching a Sumter County-specific petition for opposing the Northern Turnpike Extension. Stay tuned! 

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

Speak up to your relevant local government body and let your local electeds know that you want them to oppose ALL of the proposed Northern Turnpike toll roads routes:
