Planned Florida toll road expansion could spur growth but hurt the environment | 10News WTSP

Three new toll routes are planned for Florida: One entirely new road from Polk to Collier County, an extension of the Florida Turnpike west to connect to the Suncoast Parkway and an extension of the Suncoast Parkway to the Georgia border. The task force in charge of these plans is called the "Multi-use Corridors of Regional Economic Significance" or M-CORES. They met for the first time to unveil plans for all three tollways and outline responsibilities.
