Florida has more miles of toll roads than any other state. Still more toll roads are planned- including toll lanes on the I – 4 Ultimate expansion.

If you commute to work in Central Florida, chances are at least part of your drive is spent on a toll road. Florida has more miles of toll roads than any other state. And more toll roads are coming, including toll lanes on the upgraded I-4.

Central Florida Expressway Authority vice chair Fred Hawkins and Transportation reporter Dan Tracy- who recently wrote about the I-4 Ultimate and toll lanes for Orlando Magazine-  join the program to discuss the latest on tolls.
