Bruce B. Downs to become a Toll Road????

Well folks, the Hillsborough County Commissioners are having county staff investigate if they can install a toll booth on Bruce B. Downs (BBD) at County Line Road (CLR).
No, today is not April 1st!

Upset over not getting funding from Pasco County for the planned Hillsborough County widening of BBD from CLR to Pebble Creek, and worry over additional traffic that will come with the approved massive Wiregrass community in Pasco, Hillsborough Commissioners are thinking about using tolls for funding.
The vote was 5-2 in favor of finding out if a toll can be placed at the county border on BBD.
What's next? Customs and Immigration? This may give new meaning to the phrase: "South of the Border".
