Tell FDOT that you want other transportation priorities- including fixing existing roads, funding transit, and improving pedestrian and bicycle conditions- to be their priority! NOT the $9 billion fiasco of Tampa Bay Express Lanes (TBX).
This is your opportunity to press FDOT to disclose the financial nature of TBX. If they won’t say how this will be financed, then request that TBX be removed from the TIP (Transportation Improvement Plan) until they disclose the pro formas and financial information about project.

It is imperative that we continue to speak out with our opposition to this project! They work for us- these are our tax dollars, and they need to respect and listen to the demands of their constituents.
Our message is getting through- let’s continue to fight for the future we want and deserve!
