Proposed Delaware Memorial Bridge Toll Increase Discussion to Be Held

Last Edited:
CARNEYS POINT, N.J. -

Officials with the Delaware River and Bay Authority (DRBA) will be holding a public hearing in Salem County next week to discuss a proposed Delaware Memorial Bridge toll increase.

DRBA officials have announced they will be holding a public hearing at the Salem Community College Davidow Performing Arts Center Theatre on Hollywood Avenue in Carneys Point on Thursday, December 6th, at 6:30 p.m. 

The hearing is to discuss the goals and objectives of a proposed toll increase and detail the critical infrastructure investments required at the bi-state agency’s crossing facilities, the Delaware Memorial Bridge and Cape May – Lewes Ferry.

Officials say based on the current toll structure at the bridge, future revenues will be inadequate for the Authority to fund the essential capital infrastructure projects that are expected to cost an estimated $440 million over the next five years.
