Sanibel Causeway Tolls To Resume In January

provided to The Santiva Chronicle

Lee County will resume normal toll operations on the third of its three toll bridges – the Sanibel Causeway – at 6 a.m. Jan. 1.

The county’s toll program – called LeeWay – will honor its discount programs for Sanibel residents who had them prior to the storm through Jan. 31. Sanibel-based LeeWay customers are asked to renew their programs for 2023 now. Typically, the annual renewal process takes place in October.

Sanibel residents with power and internet access can renew online at A phone line for renewal also is available at 239-533-9297 beginning Thursday, Dec. 1. LeeWay also will email Sanibel program participants this month.

Contractors who are doing work on Sanibel should visit the website to obtain a free LeeWay transponder and to deposit funds into an account to avoid paying the $3 administrative fee that is applied to those without transponders. Transponders from other entities, such as SunPass and E-ZPass, also work. Visit for a complete list. All three county toll bridges are all-electronic; no cash is accepted.

The City of Sanibel has not yet established a date when re-entry passes will no longer be required.
