The Road Warrior has received questions regarding whether the government shutdown will impact construction on major roads like I-275, the Veterans Expy. and US-19.
The Florida Department of Transportation says that because their projects are funded by gas taxes and not the "general fund" -- which is partially funded by federal dollars -- drivers should not see any delays in our current construction projects.
The Road Warrior will continue to monitor the situation and bring you updates in the event that our roads are impacted.
