KEY LARGO, FL – The new All-Electronic Tolling System on Card Sound Road will begin collecting tolls on Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018. It replaces the cash-only tollbooths that were removed last year.
With the new system, all tolls will be collected electronically. Motorists will use either SunPass®, another interoperable transponder, or be billed utilizing the TOLL-BY-PLATE system. Cash will not be accepted on the roadway. TOLL-BY-PLATE customers will be charged the toll, plus a monthly $2.50 administrative fee and will receive a bill by mail.
The new Card Sound Road toll rates are: $1.50 for two axle vehicles (cars, pickup trucks and motorcycles) and $1 per axle for vehicles with 3 or more axles. Two discount programs are available for two-axle vehicles only – and those two-axle vehicles must use SunPass® and have an account in good standing.

NOTE: Discount programs do not apply to vehicles towing a boat or trailer. Your account will be charged $1 per axle for any vehicle going through the toll with three axles or more, even if you have an annual pass. And trips made through the toll with three axles or more will not count toward the rebate program.
