Expressway Authority deal allows E-ZPass use from Northeast on Central Florida toll roads

The Central Florida Expressway Authority has approved a deal with a consortium of northern toll agencies that will allow their customers to drive Central Florida toll roads, paying tolls with their hometown transponders.

The deal, approved Thursday by the CFX Board of Trustees, is with the E-ZPass group representing 37 toll-road and toll-bridge agencies in 16 northeast states from Maine to North Carolina, and as far west as Illinois. The arrangement will become operational sometime next spring.
