Remember, today’s the last day before the Miami-Dade portion of the Turnpike gets rid of cash as payment


Drivers headed to the Keys over the Presidents Day weekend on Florida’s Turnpike will encounter the newest change in toll collecting: No cash, please.

At 12:01 a.m. Feb. 19, crews will begin to close all the old-fashioned toll booths on the 47-mile Homestead Extension, which runs from Miramar to Florida City. The transition is expected to take about 48 hours.

You’ll pay either with SunPass, or you’ll be billed later, based on photographs of your license plate as you drive under overhead gantries. Monthly bills will include a $2.50 service charge.

It’s part of a multi-year plan to convert the entire turnpike system to a cashless toll road.

That only leaves a few of the east-west expressways and causeways as the last remaining cash-takers. You can get a Sunpass or a Sunpass-Mini at local Publix and CVS locations.
