The last hand-collected toll at Card Sound Bridge will be taken July 31.
The toll gate at the Miami-Dade-Monroe County line was one of the last human-staffed tolls in South Florida. For decades, the toll has been $1 for most vehicles, with an extra 50 cents for each additional axle.
Construction on the new automated toll system will start Aug. 1. That will include a Sunpass electronic tolling system. While it's under construction, no tolls will be collected. It's scheduled for completion in February of next year, according to a press release from Monroe County.
