The express toll lanes cometh, and Orlando will never be the same.

I-4 will be getting managed toll roads added to the center of the notoriously jammed section that runs through Orlando over the next few years. The new lanes will cover 21 miles from Kirkman Road up to Longwood and 434. This will make I-4 a 10-laner, and it will add new ramps and 56 bridges.

Supposedly, the fee to get on the express lane will change according to how much traffic is on the road. The more cars, the more the fee; the lighter the load, the less it'll cost.

What do you think? Will you take the new toll lanes once they're finished?

Note – Can we make the underpasses a little nicer? Like they have here.
