Possible toll change on 836, 112
On the Web
MIAMI (WSVN) -- The Miami-Dade Expressway Authority hopes to switch current toll plazas on State Roads 836 and 112 to an all-electronic tolling system.
If the change is approved, toll plazas on 836 and 112, also known as the Dolphin and Airport Expressways, would be torn down and repositioned so that every car that drives those highways would now have to pay a toll. However, if the vote goes through as expected, toll prices would actually go down, as the distribution of the tolls to those using the highways will become more evenly distributed.
The toll plazas would be replaced by all-electronic, scanning equipment hanging from gantries that will collect tolls from cars equipped with SunPass devices. Cameras on the system will in turn gather data to send collection letters to drivers without SunPass devices.
If approved, the all-electronic toll collections would begin next year.
MDX will hold a public hearing before making a final decision on the change on Tuesday at 4 p.m. For more information: www.mdxway.com/mdx-public-hearing.
