Whether it was the road you drove to work today, the highway you took on vacation, or the road that passes through your neighborhood, roads affect every person in every walk of life. Turnpikes and roads may not be something that we think about regularly, but they have an effect on the economy, our quality of life, and the environment. On May 17, 2019 Governor DeSantis signed the Multi-use Corridors of Regional Economic Significance (M-CORES) program into law. The program is intended to address issues such as hurricane evacuation, traffic mitigation, water and sewer connectivity, etc. What else will this program address? How will this program affect your way of life?
