Miami-Dade Expressway Authority
Good news for drivers who use Miami-Dade’s expressways. The Miami-Dade Expressway Authority (MDX) has announced a toll freeze.
The free ride is about to end on the 836. More than a dozen Sunpass toll points have been installed up and down the expressway. It means anyone driving on the 836 is going to pay, and for some they’ll be paying double. This CBS4 investigation looks into the tolls, who will be impacted and where all that money, nearly a billion dollars is going.
The complete closures on the 836 that were expected to begin Thursday night have been canceled.
Governor Rick Rick Scott was in Davie, North of the Miami-Dade border Friday, and not talking about the resignation down South in Coral Gables that rocked his campaign.
Drivers on State Road 836/Dolphin Expressway will no longer be able to pay the toll in cash. On Sunday, the toll plaza went all electronic.
Come Sunday night, cash will no longer be accepted at the Dolphin Expressway toll booth.
Tolls will be going up for millions of drivers in Miami-Dade.
Some South Miami-Dade residents may not like it, but a proposal to build an expressway along U.S. 1 from Pinecrest to Florida City is moving forward.
This week the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority raised tolls on several expressways.
Next year drivers on State Roads 836 and 112 may have to pay more to use the expressways. On Tuesday, the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority approved a plan to revamp tolls on the 836 and 112 expressways.
