Lane Construction Corp. has won a $134.6-million contract to build a section of Suncoast Parkway 2, a new highway leading north of Tampa.
Suncoast Parkway 2, also known as SR 589, will be a four-lane, limited access toll-road extending north for about 13 miles from the existing Suncoast Parkway.
Under the contract, Lane will build the second of two sections that will comprise Suncoast Parkway 2. The section will run from South of SR 700 (US 98) to SR 44 in Hernando and Citrus counties.
Construction is to begin in early 2018 and take about 48 months to complete.
The project will involve the construction of 15 bridges, milling and resurfacing, base work, drainage improvements, curb and gutter, traffic signals, lighting and signing, guardrail, retaining walls, sidewalk, and a multi-use trail.
