Thirteen months after first proposing it, Florida State University won approval for a new access road to its southwest campus to be included in a taxpayer-funded plan to improve access from the airport to downtown Tallahassee.

In a 12-0 vote, Leon and Tallahassee commissioners – sitting as the Blueprint Intergovernmental Agency – approved amending and expanding an airport gateway plan for Springhill Road.
