Florida toll road task forces moving forward

Task forces set up to study and make recommendations about three major toll-road proposals will move forward with meetings this month.

The proposed roads, a major priority of Senate President Bill Galvano, R-Bradenton, during the 2019 legislative session, would expand the Suncoast Parkway from the Tampa Bay area to Jefferson County; extend the Florida Turnpike west to connect with the Suncoast Parkway; and add a new multi-use corridor, including a toll road, from Polk County to Collier County.
