I am moving next month to Brooksville. I am new to FL area. Can anyone tell me how busy Suncoast is in AM and what I might expect in travel time to exit 19 .... I have to be around exit 19 by 8 AM. Is traffic heavy heading south on Suncoast or is it smooth sailing between 7-8 AM on weekdays?? Just trying to plan properly for my commute to work. THANKS!

By that time of the day traffic will be heavy mostly from the Citris Mall exit down to Tampa.

Traveling south on the suncoast parkway from brooksville (state road 50 exit)to exit 19 which i think is state road 54, should be about 25-35 minutes depending on if you have sunpass and how fast you drive. If you dont have sunpass, allow a couple of extra minutes to get through the toll plazas(there are 2 @ $1.00 each for cars). Most traffic heads south in the morning and north in the afternoon.

Just know that most of the on/off ramps require either sunpass or exact change.(i.e. you need quarters) The State DOT has recently changed most on/off ramps to have dedicated sunpass lanes and an exact change only lane. So if you get on at state road 50 you will need a sunpass or exact change.

Thanks. I have sunpass. It doesn't seem like it will be that bad then! About what it normally takes for us to go from here up to there on weekend afternoons.
