Project Timeline

In May 2019, Governor Ron DeSantis signed Senate Bill 7068, creating the Multi-use Corridors of Regional Economic Significance (M-CORES) Program within the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) in order to study the feasibility of three different regional corridors: The Suncoast Connector, The Northern Turnpike Connector, and The Southwest-Central Florida Connector.

A Task Force comprised of state agencies, local governments, and environmental groups was assigned to each corridor. For more than a year, the Task Forces met to discuss transportation and infrastructure projects within the corridors. On November 15, 2020, the Task Forces issued their final reports.

In the 2021 Florida Legislative Session, a bill to repeal MCORES was introduced and subsequently passed in July 2021. SB 100 directs Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise to study what is now known as the Northern Turnpike Extension.

A report summarizing the status of the Project Development and Environment Study must be submitted to the Governor, Senate President, and Speaker of the Florida House by December 31, 2022.
