Just a reminder that all Florida tolls are still suspended, ya'll


Florida Governor Rick Scott announced that all tolls are still suspended as the state recovers from Hurricane Irma.

Scott made the announcement today in a statement on Hurricane Irma relief efforts, which also included updates on power outages, school closures and shelters.  

Gov. Rick Scott initially directed the Florida Department of Transportation to cease collection of tolls back on Sept. 5, after declaring a state of emergency.

Update: FDOT announced that tolls will be reinstated this Thursday, Sept. 21, at midnight.
