Florida Governor Rick Scott has announced the suspension of tolls on all Florida roadways effective 5 p.m. Tuesday, September 5.

This includes the 408, 417, 528, and more, until further notice.


“Ensuring the safety of Florida families and visitors is our top priority and suspending tolls statewide will help people quickly evacuate and make it easier for all Floridians to access important hurricane supplies to ensure they are fully prepared,” Scott said.

“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,” said Scott.

“We are continuing to closely monitor the developments of Hurricane Irma and will continue to take aggressive action to keep our state safe.”

Last October, toll roads were suspended in anticipation for Hurricane Matthew.
