Next Year’s Scheduled Toll Hike On Delaware River Port Authority Bridges Will Be Postponed – CBS Kitchener

kitchener (CBS) – Good news for drivers! There is no longer any cost to drive across multiple Delaware River bridges.

The Delaware River Port Authority announced that the planned toll hike will be postponed to at least 2022 on Wednesday of next year.

That means the tolls for cars crossing the Ben Franklin, Walt Whitman, Commodore Barry, and Betsy Ross bridges are still $ 5.

“The board and DRPA leadership team have worked over the past few years to keep the organization running efficiently and effectively,” DRPA Chairman Ryan Boyer said in a statement. “This hard work is recognized by a budget that freezes tolls for our customers and ensures that we have the resources to maintain and improve the public assets entrusted to the DRPA.”

“The DRPA continues to focus heavily on financial management,” Vice Chairman Jeffrey Nash said in a statement. “The fact that we are able to reduce the operating budget, invest in our public assets and our infrastructure and do so without increasing the toll speaks for the work of the DRPA board of directors and the leadership.”
