Does new Florida transportation plan call for privatizing public toll roads?08/05/11 Seán Kinane
WMNF Drive-Time News Friday | Listen to this entire show:
Friday afternoon the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) released what it’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 doesn’t use clear language, but seems to imply that new construction of managed lanes on these highways will be privatized.
