The following is a list of Toll Roads in Florida. Florida has 734 miles (1,181 km) of toll roads, bridges and causeways as of June 2013, more than any other state.[1] The longest of these is Florida's Turnpike, running 313 miles (504 km), opened in 1957. The majority of the toll roads have state road designations with a special toll shield, including the Turnpike and Homestead Extension.

Florida's Turnpike Enterprise, a part of the Florida Department of Transportation, owns and operates Florida's Turnpike and the Homestead Extension, the Sawgrass Expressway (SR 869) in Broward County, Polk Parkway (SR 570), in Polk County, Suncoast Parkway (SR 589), Veterans Expressway (SR 568/SR 589) in the Tampa Bay Area, the northern end of Seminole Expressway (SR 417), the southern six miles (10 km) of Southern Connector Extension (SR 417), the southern 11 miles (18 km) of Daniel Webster Western Beltway (SR 429) and the western eight miles (13 km) of Beachline West Expressway (SR 528) in the Orlando Area.[2]

The Turnpike collects tolls on the portion of I-75 known as Alligator Alley, the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, the Pinellas Bayway System and the Beachline East (State Road 528) — all FDOT-owned roads and bridges. It also provides toll collection services for the Garcon Point and Mid-Bay Bridges in Florida's Panhandle as well as the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway in Tampa.[3] These roads, as well as the roads on the Central Florida Expressway Authority system (Apopka Expressway, Beachline Expressway east of exit 8, Central Florida GreeneWay, East-West Expressway, and the Western Beltway) are compatible with SunPass and benefit from an average of 25% discount.[4]
