Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise is an agency of the Florida Department of Transportation, overseeing a 460 mile system of limited access toll highways. The Turnpike Mainline reaches from North Miami to a junction with Interstate 75 in north central Florida. The Mainline extends through the counties of Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River, Okeechobee, Osceola, Orange, Lake and Sumter. The Turnpike System includes the 47 mile Homestead Extension in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties; among other facilities statewide.
Florida’s Turnpike is a user-financed system that uses toll revenues, service plaza sales revenue, and bonds to pay for new construction and maintenance of the entire system. The Turnpike does not receive traditional gas tax revenue.
