Governor Scott Suspends Tolls Across Florida In Response To Irma

By on September 6, 2017 in WNDB News

Florida – This week, Governor Rick Scott directed the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) to suspend tolls across the entire State of Florida in preparation for Hurricane Irma.

By suspending all tolls, Floridians and visitors will more easily be able to prepare for any potential storm impacts, access important hurricane supplies, and quickly and safely evacuate when necessary, according to a release by the Governor’s office. The tolls will be suspended for the duration of the storm’s impact to Florida.

“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,” says Scott. “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.”
