Lee County electronic tolls here to stay

Leave the quarters in the kids’ piggy bank and the folding money in your pocket. Electronic tolling on Lee County bridges will become permanent as a new tolling program for three major bridges takes effect in October.

Transponders affixed to vehicles will automatically debit an account attached to the vehicle, and  discounts on motorcycle tolls will be eliminated. 

Drivers without a transponder will be billed by mail. In October, drivers will again start paying a $3 administrative fee for toll-by-plate. The fee was suspended when collectors were removed from the toll booths..
