Drivers make their away along a St. Johns County beach.

Here’s a sign that life may be slowly getting back to normal: the return of toll charges for people who want to drive on St. Johns County beaches.

St. Johns County officials said the toll booths on beach access ramps will open at 9 a.m. on Monday, March 1.

Daily passes are $10 for St. Johns County residents and visitors alike. The cost is $5 for disabled people and active military.

Annual on-beach driving passes are also available.

Anyone who purchased a pass last year can use it this year, as long as they’ve still got the sticker.

The county decided it would honor 2020 passes in 2021 after Florida’s beaches were shut down last March because of the coronavirus pandemic.
