A rural-looking Fort Pierce toll plaza entrance welcomes motorists to the Sunshine State Parkway, the first 110-mile section of Florida's Turnpike. At the time of the photo, the Fort Pierce interchange was the northern terminus of the Sunshine State Parkway, which ran between Miami and Fort Pierce and opened to traffic in January 1957.
