With nearly 500 miles of safe and beautifully maintained toll roads, the Turnpike offers convenient routes and easy access to major highways throughout the state.

The Turnpike System is used daily by more than two million motorists and is operated by Florida's Turnpike Enterprise, part of the Florida Department of Transportation.

SunTrax is a large-scale, cutting-edge facility dedicated to the research, development and testing of emerging transportation technologies in safe and controlled environments. The facility is located off I-4 between Orlando and Tampa.
