Starting at 5 p.m. today (Tuesday), drivers across the entire state of Florida will not have to pay tolls. Gov. Rick Scott has directed the Florida Department of Transportation to suspend tolls on all roadways "for the duration of the storm’s impacts."
The suspension is meant to make it easier for residents (and visiting tourists) to prepare for the storm, access hurricane supplies, and quickly and safely evacuate if necessary.
Governor Scott said in a statement, “FDOT has been in constant contact with local districts and stands ready to provide traffic assistance alongside the Florida Highway Patrol and their law enforcement partners. We are continuing to closely monitor the developments of Hurricane Irma and will continue to take aggressive action to keep our state safe.”
