Don't know how many of you are aware of this, but for those of us who frequently take the 408 and other Orlando area toll roads, this may be of interest:

After they just raised tolls a quarter, they are wasting it on a stupid fake suspension bridge over Lake Underhill. There is already a bridge, of course, they are just adding faux suspension cables. Who is this going to benefit besides the homeowners on Lake Underhill?

I don't know about you, but I would have rather had my tolls kept lower.

They already did something similar but smaller scale on the new section of SR414 that overpasses 441. There, it's big steel tube arches on either side of the 414 that serve no obvious purpose. They were added after the road was opened to traffic, and don't seem to attach to the overpass at all.
