Ambassadors will help you connect to your peers and introduce you to the “who’s who” of the industry. Beyond the outstanding networking opportunities. presentations, focus sessions and panel discussions keep our members informed of toll and transportation industry updates.
Ron DeSantis Signs multi-million dollar toll roads plan!
With Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis‘ approval and to the dismay of some environmentalists, the state will start saving money for three major toll road projects that supporters have said will benefit rural areas and complement Florida’s growing population. DeSantis on Friday signed into law the bill (SB 7068). Senate President Bill Galvano, a Bradenton Republican, had prioritized the legislation leading into the 2019 Session, which ended earlier in May. Galvano, in a prepared statement, called the bill “an innovative approach to infrastructure that will enable Florida to strategically plan for future population growth, while at the same time revitalizing rural communities, protecting our unique natural resources, and enhancing public safety.” The legislation will tentatively kickstart three major toll road projects envisioned by Galvano. Money linked to the legislation would go toward plans to extend the Tampa-area Suncoast Parkway to the Florida-Georgia line, connecting the northern terminus of the Florida Turnpike to the Suncoast Parkway, and constructing the Southwest-Central Florida Connector between Polk and Collier counties. The need for each project, however, will be examined by special task forces. Those panels, which will include environmental representatives, will consult with the Florida Department of Transportation and the public. A Senate news release said “corridor need, economic and environmental impacts, hurricane evacuation needs, and land use impacts” will be evaluated by the task forces.“Project construction cannot be funded until a report is completed,” the Senate news release said.
