Attn: Orlando Visitors – New Road Toll On Its Way, With Potential $25 Penalty

Orlando is in the midst of a road construction boom and frankly, a whole lot of Central Florida roads are a total pain to drive on. We wrote about the various projects just about a year ago, and guess what? With just a few exceptions at Walt Disney World, they’re all still going on.
