Drivers on Hilton Head Island have just a few more days to use the Cross Island Parkway toll-free.
Beginning 12:01 a.m. Monday, S.C. Department of Transportation officials will re-instate toll collections that S.C. Gov. Henry McMaster waived Sept. 8 to facilitate Hurricane Irma evacuation, according to an SCDOT news release sent Friday.
When the toll booths reopen, the cost will remain $1.25 cash or 75 cents with a Palmetto Pass.
Last year, SCDOT suspended the toll for weeks as Hurricane Matthew recovery occurred.
Never miss a local story.
The 7.5-mile parkway opened in 1998.
SCDOT officials have said the debt taken on by the state to build the road is scheduled to be paid off by June 30, 2021.
