    CSX ought to consider relaying the tracks on its former SAL line between Coleman and Auburndale, much like Union Pacific has done in Texas and Arkansas along Amtrak's Texas Eagle route. If I-75 becomes a toll road, some big trucks will seek alternate routing to avoid the high costs of tolls which delays shipments. If trucks do use the toll roads, then it is a loss for consumers as they will pass on the tolls in the costs of goods sold.
