Is it time for the Tampa Bay area to create express toll lanes to speed up urban traffic? Or is it a waste of taxpayer money and an affront to historic neighborhoods?

This week on Florida Matters we're talking about the transportation plan known as Tampa Bay Express, or TBX.

In this preview, Florida Matters host Carson Cooper spoke with Caitlin Johnston, a transportation reporter for the Tampa Bay Times, and Ray Chiaramonte, Executive Director of the Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority (TBARTA).
