Within the last month we have had several guests who opposed the TBX Project, which proposes to expand the interstate system throughout Tampa bay adding toll roads. Today we hear from Raymond Chiaramonte, Executive Director of the Tampa Bay Area Regional Transit Authority, and Debbie Hunt with the Florida Department of Transportation, two proponents for TBX. They respond to criticism from citizens and local media, including a documentary made by USF student filmmakers, that the project won’t solve traffic congestion and would hurt the Tampa communities surrounding the interstate.
