Florida toll road fight is just beginning in Tallahassee

Gaining initial legislative support last year might have been the easy part for controversial and expensive toll roads envisioned to cut through more than 300 miles of mostly rural land from Collier County to the Georgia border.

With many environmental and business groups split about the need and purpose of the projects, lawmakers during the 2020 legislative session will start looking at continued funding and accompanying infrastructure as tentative alignments for the roads will soon be rolled out.
