TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - State officials are moving forward with a multibillion dollar plan to create express toll lanes on Tampa Bay-area interstates.

Known as Tampa Bay Express, the plan involves creating express toll lanes along area interstates that residents can pay to use. The lanes will run along Interstate 275 from north St. Petersburg to northern Hillsborough County. They will also snake along much of the length of Interstate 75 in Hillsborough and for all of the county’s stretch of Interstate 4, ultimately connecting with the Polk County Parkway.

The exact amount a driver will pay depends on the travel conditions in the express lane at any given time.

The Tampa Bay Times reports (https://bit.ly/1zeEXMX) that 100 or so residents who showed up to a recent meeting weren’t happy with the plan.
