The Details

Veterans Expressway

Veterans Expressway is located in Tampa, Florida. It was fully opened to public traffic in 2018. The project has been converted from an Express Lane to a Thru Lane. It has one managed lane in each direction for 9 miles, spanning from Memorial Highway to the north of Hutchinson Road.

Veterans Expressway – overview

Veterans Expressway’s official name is State Road 589 (SR 589). It is also called Suncoast Parkway. It is a north-south toll road right next to Florida Gulf Coast. It is 68 miles (109 km) long, extending from State Road 60 in Tampa, north to SR 44 near Lecanto. Veterans Expressway is operated and maintained by Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise. The route was constructed to help the increasing commuter traffic in the Tampa-St. Petersburg metropolitan area. The Suncoast Parkway was opened in 2001 as a way to extend the expressway. In 2022, the section between US 98 and Florida State Road 44 was opened. Veterans Expressway has been eventually expanded to six general-purpose lanes with 2 Express Toll lanes.

Below you will find Veterans Expressway entrances and exits:

  • Northbound: you may enter north of West Hillsborough Avenue and North of Wilsky Boulevard. You may exit North of Wilsky Boulevard and North of Hutchison Road.

  • Southbound: you may enter South of Van Dyke Road / Suncoast Parkway and South of Gunn Highway. You may exit South of Gunn Highway and South of Memorial Highway.

On the Veterans Expressway, only 2-axle vehicles are permitted. Trucks with three or more axles aren’t permitted (transit buses, vanpools, and school buses are allowed). Drivers pay only the general toll amount. It’s charged for all other lanes on the same toll road. The Veterans Expressway (same as Suncoast Parkways) uses all-electronic toll collection.

Veterans Expressway – cost and payments

Veterans Expressway doesn’t accept cash. Cash payments stopped in June 2014. It’s now an all-electronic toll road. The table below shows toll rates that apply for drivers who decide to go along the Suncoast Parkway toll facility (both those who use Sunpass and those who use the Pay by Plate payment option).

Love the app, use it every week
Saved our day when we were on a trip and had to take a toll road on our way home
This App allows us worry-free travel on TOLL ROADS...Automatically replenishing our account, notifying us of Automatically paying our access to the Toll Road. Great relief from expensive citations for not paying while driving. Thank you. P.S. A receipt is always sent to us.
I find this app a good way to track my tolls and manage my budget. Works great for this.
The app saves me a ton extra minutes every day. Took the worry out of paying our tolls. Thank you🌴
Better than a toll tag, I use one app on both vehicles and will link my wife's car next week. Easy to travel to other states, since you're registered with all toll authorities they cover.
Been going back to the office a little so been driving more. This is great.

This app is so easy to use, and I can travel without having to worry about missing tolls.
