Expressway Authority approves changes in tolls on 836, 112


Miami Herald Staff Report

The Miami-Dade Expressway Authority board on Tuesday approved higher tolls in many cases on State Roads 836 and 112, the Dolphin and Airport expressways, along with a new electronic collection system that will eliminate cash tolls by the summer of 2014.

But minutes after the board’s close 7-6 vote, board chairman Maurice Ferre said it is possible the increase will be reconsidered at the board’s April 30 meeting.

Currently, drivers pay $1 at tollbooths on 836 and 112. Under the program approved Tuesday, lower tolls would be levied, but there will be additional collection points.
