BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – A planned expansion of a major highway to the Space Coast could bring tolls back to Brevard County.
The Florida Department of Transportation and several partnering road authorities are creating expansion plans for State Road 528, the Beachline Expressway.
The work includes several projects, spanning from the Orlando area to the coast, but one part of the early drafts that’s catching eyes is the inclusion of toll lanes.
Steve Olson with FDOT said the plan expands the road from two lanes each way to three lanes with new additions being toll lanes.
They’d likely function much like the express lanes being built on Interstate 4 right now in which drivers wanting to escape traffic congestion can elect to take the toll lanes and pay for the clearer path.
