Cash Collection On State Toll Roads In Florida Suspended Due To Coronavirus

Cash Collection on State Toll Roads in Florida Suspended Due to Coronavirus

Amid ongoing concerns about coronavirus (COVID-19) and following the governor’s guidance to avoid or slow the spread of the disease, the state of Florida Department of Transportation officials announced Thursday that they have temporarily stopped taking cash at Florida Turnpike toll plazas to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Tolls will instead be collected through an electronic process.

The change took place starting Thursday at noon. Officials urge drivers to continue driving through toll plazas and pay attention to overhead and portable signs. Vehicles without a SunPass will be billed for toll transactions at the posted cash toll rate and receive a Toll Enforcement Invoice in the mail. The invoice administrative fee ($2.50) will temporarily be waived. Drivers who elect to become a SunPass customer will receive several benefits including a discount on tolls of nearly 25%. SunPass works on all Florida toll roads and most bridges.

Due to the complexity and fluidity of the situation, the reopen date is subject to change. This closure is not mandatory, but, rather, a social distancing measure.
