Toll hikes proposed for bridges crossing Delaware River between NJ and Pennsylvania

The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission has proposed increasing tolls on eight of its crossings between New Jersey and Pennsylvania this year and again in 2024.

The bi-state agency said in a press release the proposed hikes would help “offset continuing COVID-19-induced toll revenue declines, ensure payment of financial obligations and provide funding for planned capital projects.” In addition to these bridges, the agency operates 12 other free crossings, two of which are pedestrian bridges.
