Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced Monday afternoon he has suspended tolls on roads across the state in preparation for Hurricane Dorian.
“I've expanded the suspension of tolls to include roads in and around Jacksonville, like the First Coast Expressway and the I-295 express lane. And of course, we suspended tolls on a number of roads in Florida yesterday. Also, the central Florida Expressway Authority has suspended tolls on a number of roads in and ar ound central Florida.” Service plazas along Florida’s Turnpike mainline will be open for travelers, but they are not hurricane shelters. As the storm approaches, restaurants and fuel stations will be closed and Turnpike personnel will be evacuated. In Duval and St. Johns Counties zones A and B are under mandatory evacuation.
