When You Need to Get There

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is implementing managed lanes in several high traffic areas throughout the state to help relieve congestion, improve safety, and provide drivers with travel options. Managed lanes help get you where you need to go, safely, efficiently and hassle free. Any two-axle vehicle equipped with a SunPass or another interoperable transponder can use managed lanes.
