The Florida Highway Patrol is encouraging motorists that are traveling northbound on the Florida Turnpike that there is no wait at the Turkey Lake Service plaza for fuel.
We encourage drivers to stop there and to not wait until they are in crisis for refueling. Other plazas on the Florida Turnpike have wait times… some being extensive.
This is the time to also fill generators and vehicles with gas. There will be times where local gas stations are out of gas, but all retailers are reporting that fuel trucks are regularly refilling their tanks and the public should remain calam and continue to prepare for arrival of Hurricane Irma.
