The SR 54/56 Corridor was identified by the TBARTA Master Plan as premium bus service–possibly bus rapid transit, express bus in managed lanes, express bus in mixed traffic, or some combination. The premium bus service is envisioned to service transit oriented developments that are being planned along the SR 54/56 corridor. The study has been completed and a recommended alternative has been identified.
A private consortium submitted an unsolicited proposal to FDOT to construct a toll road along the SR 54/56 corridor. FDOT decided not to move forward with the bid due to disagreement regarding financing and design concepts.
