338.2276 Western Beltway turnpike project; financing.—Upon a determination of economic feasibility, as defined in s. 338.221(8), for part C of the Western Beltway turnpike project, which part extends from Florida’s Turnpike near Ocoee in Orange County southerly through Orange County and Osceola County to an interchange with I-4 near the Osceola/Polk County line, the Department of Transportation shall include a request for the issuance of turnpike revenue bonds to construct the project as part of its next legislative budget request and tentative work program. If funding is insufficient to construct part C, it is the intent of the Legislature that such project be given priority as a project financed from subsequent issuances of turnpike revenue bonds approved by the Legislature; however, such priority consideration is contingent on the project’s meeting all economic feasibility requirements and upon the project’s being financed without the use of capitalized interest.
