Does new Florida transportation plan call for privatizing public toll roads?08/05/11 SeÃ¡n Kinane
WMNF Drive-Time News Friday | Listen to this entire show:
Friday afternoon the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) released what itâ€™s calling a Major Transportation Plan. It promises to advance projects across the state, including on these highways in the Tampa Bay area: State Road 50 in Hernando County, Pinellas Bayway in Pinellas County, and Veterans Expressway in Hillsborough County. The plan doesnâ€™t use clear language, but seems to imply that new construction of managed lanes on these highways will be privatized.
