Citrus County
Quality of Life



Citrus County provides easy access to international airports, deep-water shipping ports, and extensive interstate highway and Class I rail networks with intermodal connections. There’s even a barge canal in Citrus County that flows out to the Gulf of Mexico.

Citrus County has a well developed roadway system providing excellent east-west and north-south vehicular movement both within the county and to surrounding counties and cities. Citrus County also successfully accommodates freight, marine, and air transportation.

Port Citrus, on the northwest sector of the County, can accommodate barge traffic. Construction of the Suncoast Parkway Extension is anticipated to begin in 2016 and will provide direct access to Tampa from the center of Citrus County. A railway spur serves the Duke Energy power plant complex on the west coast. This spur enters the County in the South Dunnellon area located in the northeast and transects Citrus Springs in a southwesterly direction to CR-495 where it heads due west to the complex.

Both the Tampa International and Orlando International Airports are approximately a two-hour driving distance from the center of the County.
