Polk Transportation Organization was told the express toll lanes are the only means to relieve future congestion on Interstate 4 between Lakeland, Florida and Tampa.
The Tampa Bay Express project is part of a $6 billion project that will involve building on toll lanes in other areas around Tampa I-4 and I-75.
A feasibility study is scheduled to be finished this year, but there is no money budgeted in the current five-year plan for engineering or construction per Menna Yassin, the project manager at the Florida department of transportation.
The project is set to begin in 2020 and to add toll lanes is the ultimate widening project for the 50 year old highway within its existing right of way.
A similar task is under study on the section between Orlando and U.S. 27.

Trucking is a challenging industry, and there are a variety of things that can slow down a driver when on route, one of them being slow toll lines. Here are a few other things that can cause truckers to lose time on the road.
Because truck drivers are on the road across the country, the summer construction season isn’t the only time of year they need to avoid construction zones — wherever they are, whatever the season, there’s a good chance there will be construction traffic to wait through.
It can be slow moving when a driver is climbing mountains in a vehicle that can max at 80,000 pounds. And going down the mountains is another matter. In order for drivers to be safe, they need to go slow.
Delays of Shippers and Receivers
Waiting for the right people to sign off on a delivery, waiting for a truck to be loaded — minor logistical hiccups can cause major delays for drivers.
