The Florida Chamber Foundation estimates more than six million new residents will call Florida home by 2030. In fact, Florida has officially surpassed New York as the third most populous state in the nation. That means there will be approximately four to five million new Florida drivers commuting on our roads. Along with the one million visitors that come to our state each year, it’s estimated that there will be more than 150 million daily vehicle miles added to Florida roads by 2030.
