The Miami-Dade Expressway Authority (MDX) will host a series of workshops to provide the public an opportunity to obtain information and comment on the conversion to Open Road Tolling (ORT) and the toll rate for SR 874 (Don Shula Expressway) and SR 878 (Snapper Creek Expressway).
The public review consists of an informal format to encourage attendance at any time during the reviews, which are scheduled at the following dates, times and locations: Wednesday, May 26, 5-8 p.m., St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church Family Center, 7377 SW 64 St.; Thursday, May 27, 5-8 p.m., Miami Dade College Kendall Campus Building K, Room 413, First Floor, 11011 SW 104 St., and Tuesday, June 1, 5-8 p.m., Dave and Mary Alper Jewish Community Center on The Jay Morton-Levinthal Campus, Suchman Lobby (Rotunda), Building 3, 11155 SW 112 Ave.
Each public review will last for a three-hour period and MDX representatives will be available to provide information and respond to questions. The information to be provided includes general information on Open Road Tolling, toll rates, SunPass, and Toll-By-Plate billing for vehicles not equipped with SunPass. Upon conversion to ORT, which is projected for July, cash payments for tolls no longer will be accepted on SR 874 and SR 878. MDX is moving forward with plans to implement Open Road Tolling (ORT) on its five expressways by 2013. Overhead gantries will replace traditional toll plazas and tolls will be calculated automatically and deducted from your SunPass account. For more information, visit online at < www.MDXORT.com >.
