This investigation revealed how Lee County siphoned off nearly $50 million in tolls from Sanibel Causeway bridges to pay for other projects and now faces a $105 million bill to replace the bridges. The bridges have deteriorated so rapidly over the years because of a lack of maintenance. Motorists will pay for the new bridges; tolls have doubled to pay the expense. Following the story, county commissioners demanded an audit of the Sanibel bridge accounts. Sanibel officials are moving forward with a lawsuit against the county charging mismanagement of bridge maintenance.
