Marion County resident shares thoughts on need for turnpike extension

To the Editor:

After the recent traffic incident on I-75 and a resulting deadly crash, there can be no question anymore about a turnpike extension. With an alternate northern route, there would have been delays, of course, but not to the extent of Wednesday. The Florida Highway Patrol deserves a huge thank you for a job well done. Let’s get back to the planning table and carve out a route that makes sense. Ocala/Marion County is well on its way to being a city with failing roads and it needs to be addressed.
