legislator says he will introduce a bill that could lead
to more toll roads in the southwestern part of the state, The
Naples Daily News reported recently.
Rep. Mike Davis, R-Naples, said his bill would create a group
called the Southwest Florida Transportation Authority, which
could acquire property and issue bonds to fund toll roads.
The authority would operate in Collier and Lee counties,
which lie along the state’s gulf coast north of the Everglades.
