Monroe County officials now say they’ll continue collecting tolls by hand at the bridge through September 1st in order to relocate power lines. After that, no tolls will be collected until the installation is completed in March.

The bridge and toll road are separate from U.S. 1, the other route linking the island chain with the rest of Florida. Increasing traffic and budget concerns prompted Keys officials to convert the bridge to electronic tolls.
