The Florida Department of Transportation is holding two public workshops about the proposed leasing of Alligator Alley to a private concessionaire. The Alley is a 78-mile toll road in south Florida.
The workshops are scheduled May 27 at the Golden Gate Community Center in Naples and May 29 at the Hyatt Bonaventure in Weston.
The Alley connects Naples on the west coast with Fort Lauderdale on the east coast. The lease is being considered as a way to raise revenues for transportation projects.
FDOT has requested qualifications from prospective concessionaires to be submitted by June 3. Information about the lease is available at www.alligator-alley.com.
