All Florida Turnpike Plazas Reopened as Threat From Hurricane Dorian Diminishes

With Hurricane Dorian looking to be less of a threat to South Florida, on Tuesday and Wednesday, Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise reopened three service plazas that is closed for safety concerns.

The West Palm Beach and Fort Drum service plazas opened again on Tuesday night.

“We are glad to have two of the three service plazas reopened so that we can resume providing comfort and convenience to travelers along Florida’s Turnpike,” said Nicola Liquori, the executive director of Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise. “Forecasts have determined Hurricane Dorian is no longer a sizable threat for operations at our West Palm Beach and Fort Drum service plaza locations, and we hope to reopen Fort Pierce as soon as it is safe to do so.”

On Wednesday morning, Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise announced that it had reopened the Fort Pierce Service Plaza.

“The Fort Pierce reopening makes all eight of Florida’s Turnpike service plazas operational,” Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise noted on Wednesday. “Florida’s Turnpike had closed the plazas based on forecasts for each plaza’s geographical location.”
