Earlier this year, the legislature passed, and Gov. Ron DeSantis signed into law, a bill to fast-track three major new toll roads that will destroy large swaths Florida’s remaining rural lands, pollute waterways, increase global warming pollution and threaten endangered wildlife, including the iconic manatee and Florida panther. If completed, 330 miles of new toll roads would be built across south, central and north Florida. Construction of the “Roads to Ruin” will destroy more than 52,800 acres of farmland and wildlife habitat while at the same time promoting sprawling, unsustainable development.
