So, Why are We Expanding the Turnpike?

Great post from Tim Hullihan about the turnpike lane expansion. It’s worth noting that this is but one in an array of FDOT projects that I would argue are unnecessary and wasteful (Central Boulevard I-95 exit, Oslo Road I-95 exit, new overpasses in Palm Beach County come to mind as well). As Chuck Marohn at Strong Towns has argued convincingly, the ‘more lanes is always better’ economic development model is fundamentally broken. Check out www.strongtowns.org for more.
