CFX Tolls Likely to Remain after Current Debt Paid Off. (Upside: $3 Billion to $4 Billion in Projects Ahead.)

Orlando Sentinel reports, “In the year 2042, something interesting will happen. The Central Florida Expressway Authority, which operates 109 miles of toll roads in Orange County and is the second-biggest regional tolling authority in the nation, will have paid off its $4.3 billion debt.” However, the report adds, “because Central Florida has growing transportation needs and will need to build more roads and support commuter rail, removing tolls are unlikely, experts say. The authority’s 2040 preliminary plan is looking at building another 80 miles of roadways with a projected cost of $3.2 billion to $4.5 billion.” (The article includes a video Q&A with the reporter.)
