Some Keys roads will flood by 2025 due to sea rise. Fixing them could cost $750 million

As the staggering price tag of elevating roads in the Florida Keys comes into focus, where exactly all that cash will come from remains unclear. Consultants tasked with figuring out which roads should be elevated above rising seas first (and how much that might cost) have estimated that raising 155 miles of Monroe County roads could cost $1.8 billion. And those are just the roads at risk by 2045. The county maintains 311 miles of road — not including U.S. 1, the main road that is also known as the Overseas Highway, or city roads in places like Key West and Marathon.

They're not all that common, but the best 50-inch TVs can deliver a lot of value and performance in a more reasonable screen size than, say, larger 65-inch TVs. That said, 50-inch TVs are so uncommon because they sit in between the two most common screen sizes for 4K HDR TVs – 55-inches and 40-inches. This makes them a bit harder to find than other sizes but, for some folks with limited wall space, a 50-inch TV is the ideal solution.
