Mayor of Sunrise Plugs Sawgrass Express, I-95 and Florida Turnpike Connection

Sun-Sentinel publishes an op-ed by Mike Ryan, Mayor of Sunrise, Florida, who plugs a proposed connection between the Sawgrass Expressway and other major highways including I-95 and the Florida Turnpike. Ryan takes on FTE, arguing that, “The Turnpike Enterprise, which controls all decisions on toll roads and is planning comprehensive interchange improvements throughout the Sawgrass Expressway, refuses to construct a ramp to allow access to and from the north.” The mayor is a fan of FDOT, writing that, “In contrast, District Four of the Florida Department of Transportation has been a positive model of collaboration for other necessary changes in the corridor.”
