FDOT Shoots Down Elevated Toll Lanes for TBX

WMNF reports, “The Florida Department of Transportation is shooting down the idea of moving proposed toll lanes from ground level to an elevated expressway in Tampa; Ed McKinney, an FDOT planning and environmental administrator, told Tampa City Council members at the Community Redevelopment Agency meeting Thursday morning [January 19] that the problems cited by opponents of the Tampa Bay Express (TBX) project would actually be made worse with elevated toll lanes.”
