FDOT’s TBX Plan Includes a Bridge Lanes Conversion that Has Some Concerned

Tampa Bay Times reports on FDOT’s plan to add express lanes (one in each direction) on the Howard Frankland Bridge, leaving non-tolled drivers with “three lanes instead of the current four. State officials say this has been public knowledge for years, part of [the Tampa Bay Express plan] that includes rebuilding the bridge. But transportation activists and even top officials who voted on the proposal thought TBX would add extra lanes to the new bridge for tolls — not replace lanes that already exist.”
