Orlando Toll Road to Generate $28 Million

Posted: Feb. 19th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Toll roads seem to be the best new way to generate income for the city. Orlando’s Interstate 4 will bring in an estimated $28 million on pure tolls in the year 2020 and if that’s not enough, by the year 2045 the toll road is projected to have generated close to $225 million.

Harried motorists would be willing to spend $28 million on tolls in 2020 to get out of traffic jams on Interstate 4 through downtown Orlando, a state study has concluded.

By 2045, congestion could be so awful that drivers would fork over eight times as much money, or $225 million, to keep moving, according to the 28-page report commissioned by the state Department of Transportation and reviewed by the Orlando Sentinel.
