M-CORES - PROPOSED FLORIDA TOLL ROADS

Public Comment accepted until October 14, 2020.

Learn more about the three proposed M-CORES toll roads and the impact to our state and public lands. This hour-long webinar features Florida Conservation Voters' Government Relations Director, Lindsay Cross, and moderator Christine Johnson, president of Conservation Foundation. It was recorded on October 7, 2020.

The M-CORES program is the Multi-use Corridors of Regional Economic Significance intended to provide regional connectivity but at the price of slicing through some of the best remaining natural and agricultural areas, permanently severing connectivity within critical wildlife corridors.

The program was signed into law by Governor Ron DeSantis in May, 2019 and the Florida Department of Transportation is still accepting public comment on the draft task force reports.
