Proposed Extensions: The original plan for the Turnpike north of Orlando was to extend from Leesburg due north to Gainesville then Jacksonville, to end at Tisonia on the Georgia border, a distance of some 160 miles. The northern end was truncated and moved to Wildwood sometime between 1957 and the northern extension's opening in 1964. Currently there is a proposal to extend the northern end past I-75 to US 19 near Lebanon.
