Florida taps Raytheon for toll collection system

Florida has awarded a 10-year, $229 million contract to Raytheon Co. to deliver an electronic toll collection system to the Florida Turnpike Enterprise.

Raytheon of Waltham, Mass., will supply equipment, a central processing and audit system, and open-road tolling technology.

The company expects to complete the work in four years, after which it will remain under contract for another six years for related work.

The Florida Turnpike Enterprise manages a 612-mile system of limited-access toll highways. The toll system is a hybrid of lane-based cash and electronic equipment. The mainline turnpike runs through 11 counties north of Miami and joins with Interstate 75 in central Florida. The turnpike agency also owns and operates other toll road systems in various parts of the state.
