Not too late to stop toll roads to nowhere in Florida

The Florida Legislature took the unusual step of passing a bill that mandates the building of three toll roads. SB 7068 loosely identifies the routes, creates three separate task forces to study and advise on the routes and provides a timeline to start construction and to complete the roads.

Usually routes are studied, ridership studies are conducted, costs are estimated, and mitigation is considered before a road is funded or approved.

After my last column on the three toll roads, I heard from so many Floridians who wanted to learn more about these roads and how they can get involved to stop them or to have a say in the route.
