Florida Dept. of Transportation Shopping Spree with Tax Dollars
For years, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) claimed it was too broke to fund future road improvements across the State. Finding the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, now several major roadway projects are underway, representing billions of hard earned tax dollars being spent. Locally, major projects underway include SR 9B phase II, First Coast Expressway (Outer Beltway), and the I-95 Overland Bridge. Now flush with someone’s cash, additional major projects include managed toll lanes in the median of I-295, expanding the I-95/JTB interchange and widening the Fuller Warren Bridge. Get used to seeing construction barricades for the next decade.
