FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - The Florida Department of Transportation says it will start collecting tolls on state roadways and bridges again after more than a two-week suspension because of Hurricane Irma.

Tolls were suspended across Florida on Sept. 5 to help with Irma evacuation and relief efforts.

In a news release, the agency said tolls will once again be collected starting at 12:01 a.m. Thursday for all roads except a portion of the Homestead Extension of Florida’s Turnpike to assist Monroe County residents with recovery efforts. Monroe County includes the Florida Keys, among the hardest-hit areas.
