More than 10 million a mile for the I-10 widening in Pensacola. Wow.

It's pretty insulting that still no money is being allocated for a flyover at the I-95 and Butler Boulevard interchange.

Other than enabling homophobia and shaking Mickey Mouse's hand, what exactly is Mayor Brown doing?

The First Coast Outer Beltway seems a low priority. I'm guessing Mr Scott is helping a buddy or two out. That money could get more bang for the buck elsewhere in JAX.

The Mayor has no control over what FDOT does with their money and their infrastructure.

The North Florida TPO has ranked it as a top priority for years.  All of the northeast Florida projects listed for funding in 2014 have been worked on for several years.
