The highways that will suspend tolls are:

  • Florida's Turnpike
  • Sawgrass Expressway (Florida 869)
  • Alligator Alley (mile marker 25 and mile marker 100)
  • I-595 Express
  • I-95 Express
  • I-75 Express
  • Beachline Expressway (Florida 528)
  • East and West Beltway, 417 and 429 (Interstate 295)

Hurricane Dorian is one of the strongest Atlantic storms on record. Winds from Dorian are expected to begin impacting South Florida on Monday morning.
