Remember: Bridge Tolls Are Going Up

Increase goes into effect at the end of June 30

As June ends, so do the days of 75-cent tolls on bridges over the Delaware River.

As of 11:10 p.m. Thursday, tolls for cars traveling over the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission's seven toll bridges -- including the ones along Interstate 78 and Route 22 -- will increase to one dollar.

Tolls will rise for trucks as well, under the DRJTBC's new rate structure. The tolls apply to motorists coming from New Jersey into Pennsylvania.

....am I horribly misinformed? Wasn't the Route 22 bridge in Easton supposed to be free after it was paid off? What happened there and why? I'd like to so I'm less, you know... angry.

I've actually heard the same thing, but about ALL the bridges. It's worth looking into, if only to debunk an urban legend. (Not saying it IS one...)

From what I can tell, bridges in NJ *never* get "paid off" - they just refinance the debt and keep the tolls comin' in. I *have* experienced a bridge being "paid off" - the Fuller-Warren bridge in my hometown of Jacksonville, FL to be specific, although it was because Jax abolished all tolls on bridges in 1981. I do remember they had a big celebration at the time.
