Excerpt: There have been plans in Florida for expressways, but some were never constructed due to financial problems, community opposition and environmental issues. In the 1970s, most of South Florida's freeways were cancelled due to voters choosing to direct funding away from roads toward mass transit projects and the planned Miami Metrorail. Hialeah in particular is anti-freeway, as many proposals for freeways in the city have been cancelled due to community opposition. In the 1970s, there were plans for several freeways in the Tampa Bay area, but most were cancelled by 1982. The high cost of acquiring right of way in this densely populated area, as well as community opposition were the key factors in canceling most of these freeways. Instead, planners decided to widen existing roads. Throughout the 20th century, Suffolk County in the U.S. state of New York planned to upgrade and improve many of its roads. Most of the construction of these roads took place between the 1940s and 1980s. However, many of them were unfinished, unbuilt or never upgraded due to fiscal concerns and a rash of anti-highway opposition in the late 20th century. Those that were unbuilt or unfinished are listed as follows. County Road 2 was proposed to be extended as part of a lengthening of Straight Path (named Straight Path Extension) northeast of NY 231. The terminus was either to be at County Road 4 (Commack Road) at the north end of the multiplex with the proposed Babylon-Northport Expressway or would merge with Carll's Straight Path just south of the Long Island Expressway, then terminate at Long Island Motor Parkway with another potential unorthodox interchange with the Babylon-Northport Expressway. County Road 8 (Yaphank Bypass) was to be a new four-lane road beginning at the vicinity of exit 66 of the Long Island Expressway, running west of the Carman's River and terminating at County Road 21 near Bayliss (Bailey) Road. County Road 24 (formerly Longwood Road) was planned as a Farmingville
