Florida Department of Transportation – Florida’s Turnpike All Electronic Tolling Phase 5B

Florida Department of Transportation $40 million project increased mobility, safety and travel experience by upgrading tolling equipment along the Sawgrass Expressway in Broward County. The all electronic tolling in place uses a combination of SunPass transponders and Toll-By-Plate for travelers without transponders, eliminating cash payments and expediting transactions while reducing delays at the tolling booths. Crews followed an aggressive schedule using the design-build procurement method as they upgraded each tolling location to make them free-flowing and increase through put over the previous system. The corridor has also experienced a significant decrease in accidents as the need for slowing down to stop and pay for tolls has been eliminated.
