Pasco Fiasco-  Concerned residents of Pasco County opposing the elevated Toll Road on SR 54/56

 

The Pasco Fiasco is our name given to the proposed project that is now being called Florida 54 Xpress.  This privately funded elevated Toll Road would run right through the heart of southern Pasco County  along the SR54/56 corridor for a stretch of 33 miles, adversely impacting the quality of life of its residents and threatening established businesses.   Please become fully informed by accessing the information within this site about this project that will have serious implications upon the people in Pasco County.

Breaking NewsDue to recent developments, Pasco Fiasco is postponing the May 19, 2014 Rally designed to demonstrate our strong opposition to the proposed SR-54/56 Elevated Toll Road. The FDOT’s decision to reject a private firm’s unsolicited bid clearly supports our position that this proposal was neither financially sound nor compatible with the needs and desires of Pasco County residents and businesses. Additionally, a majority of the Pasco County Commissioners have publically rebuked the proposal, as well as all of the District 2 and 4 Commissioner Candidates.
