All-electronic tolling for Lee bridges becomes permanent Oct. 1

By Staff | Sep 1, 2021

Lee County wants all residents, business owners and motorcyclists to know that its All-Electronic Tolling program for the Midpoint, Cape Coral and Sanibel Causeway bridges will become permanent in October.

This means that beginning Oct. 1, the county will be re-instate a $3 administrative fee for pay-by-plate customers, which affects motorists who do not have a transponder or do not maintain a positive balance in their LeeWay account.

Transponders used for all-electronic tolling are available, free of charge, at www.leewayinfo.com.

Lee County has used All-Electronic Tolling since the pandemic began in 2020. The Lee Board of County Commissioners voted in June and August this year to maintain this to align with the State’s SunPass program, to return to the same tollway fee structure that was in place before the pandemic, and to adjust motorcyclists’ toll pricing to align with vehicles.

LeeWay transponders also are available at the customer service center. Motorists with transponders are not charged the administrative fee. Several other toll agency transponders work at county toll plazas as well. Motorcycle customers also are eligible to obtain a transponder.
