FDOT’s Suspension Of Garcon Bridge Tolls Enters Its Ninth Month

WKRG reports, on Friday, Florida DOT Secretary Kevin Thibault directed Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise to extend the toll suspension in effect for the Garcon Point Bridge through Sunday, June 6, 2021. Governor Ron DeSantis (R) first halted collection of the five-dollar toll during September’s Hurricane Sally, but a continuous series of extensions has been ordered because of storm damage to the nearby Pensacola Bay Bridge. It was reported last week that the reopening of that bridge is on track to take place over Memorial Day weekend.
