The Florida Department of Transportation is looking to put a flyover at one of the busiest intersections in the city of Jacksonville and they want to charge you for it.
FDOT is considering tolling the flyover they want to put between I-95 and JTB, partly to help alleviate the congestion that frequently stops up the Butler exit. The current lanes would stay and remain free. The flyover would run on SunPass, so there would be no tollbooths.
The project costs $125 million, which the state doesn't have right now. This comes on the heels of the FDOT's plan to expand 295 and add toll lanes.
Tolls may very well be where the state begins to turn for revenue as the money in its coffers dwindle in a tough economy where revenue sources are few, according to a local newspaper.
The state will make a preliminary determination in the next two or three months.
