JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- FDOT is continuing to look for ways to improve traffic on local highways.
Their latest idea, will be adding two new express lanes on the I -295 East Beltway, between 9-b and Butler Boulevard.
But it all comes at a cost.
The toll fee would start at fifty cents and go up depending on the amount of traffic.
Tolls will be collected by SunPass.
The estimated cost of the four mile project is around $155 million dollars.
Construction is set to begin in 2015.
The first phase will be added between the Buckman Bridge and I-95.

Agree with RFM there is no need for new toll roads.

Amazing how the lemmings fail to look a few years back when we were told by the Politicians that the recently raised Tag & Vehicle Registrations PAID for STATE & LOCAL ROAD Improvements and Maintenance. Besides, I-295 like I-95 are Federally Funded. This is just another State & Local Gov't GOUGE.Lately it seems, our Local and State Government is ALL "Good Old Boy" Politics as usual; Do as we wish and continue to: RESENT the TAXPAYERS & VOTERS instead of REPRESENT THEM!
