Know Before You Go: New Florida Turnpike Toll Plaza Procedures in South Florida:

 

Florida’s Turnpike Extension (FTE) has introduced an all-electronic toll system (no physical cash tollbooths) on the Turnpike between Milepost 0 in Florida City and Milepost 47 at the Miami-Dade/Broward County line.

What does this mean for U.S. and international visiting motorists who travel in and out of the Florida Keys? The cash-less system is intended to continue making toll roads on this stretch of the Turnpike safe and efficient to drive, as well as more convenient for travelers. Most rental car companies have programs that allow customers to use lanes that utilize SunPass, a pre-paid toll program already in place for travel on toll roads. The tolls plus a minimal service fee are charged to the credit card used to rent the vehicle.

Resident motorists without a SunPass have an alternative method to pay tolls without stopping. Through the TOLL-BY-PLATE system, a picture will be taken of the registered driver’s license plate and a monthly invoice will be mailed to the vehicle’s registered owner. A $2.50 administrative fee will apply, per invoice which is billed on a monthly basis.

A Scenic Drive Along An All-American Road

 

The Florida Keys Overseas Highway, from north of Key Largo to Key West, has been designated an All-American Road. The Keys highway is the only All-American Road in Florida. It’s the highest recognition possible under the National Scenic Byways program established by the U.S. Congress in 1991. Only 30 other roadways in the nation have earned the prestigious title.

  • What are Mile Markers?
    Once you’re in the Keys, U.S. 1 becomes the Overseas Highway, designated with little green mile-marker signs on the side of the highway. They begin just south of Florida City with number 127 and run all the way down to zero in Key West. Locals use them as address references — here’s a quick guide:
