Toll lanes for I-95 Under Consideration



Get used to seeing construction cones on I-95. More are on the way. Tolls will also return.

I wish they would wait to see how big of a failure the 295 tolls they're working on now is. This is not Houston, put your money elsewhere FDOT!

Maybe once people start paying what it costs to sprawl all over NE Fl they will stop doing it.  The free ride is over - litterally.

Let's see how well the traffic flows without a massive construction project on I-95 before we add toll lanes.  By my tally, there has been construction between Stockton and Emerson since 2002.

I didn't make the Work Program meeting.  Did FDOT annouce that I-295 Express (JTB to 9B) would start in the next few months?  That's funny, because final design hasn't started yet.

^ The 295 express lanes project is Design Build, and the award is under protest.

Right, but was there an announcement about the protest and it being resolved in the next few months to start work?
