Delaware Memorial Bridge

A second version of a Delaware Memorial Bridge Toll hike was approved by the Delaware River and Bay Authority (DRBA) Commission Wednesday.

 


A Delaware Memorial Bridge toll hike appears back on track.

Gov. John Carney and New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy reached an agreement allowing the $1 toll increase to go forward later this spring.

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy has vetoed the Delaware Memorial Bridge toll increase which would have taken effect March 1.


It will be more expensive to use the Delaware Memorial Bridge starting next spring.


Officials presented a proposed toll hike for the Delaware Memorial Bridge to the public Tuesday.


Drivers crossing the Delaware Memorial Bridge will likely pay more for tolls starting this spring.


The Delaware Memorial Bridge was re-opened to traffic Sunday night after a nearly six hour closure because of a gas leak at Croda Atlas Point in New Castle.

Drivers crossing the Delaware Memorial Bridge to enter the First State from New Jersey may get a bit of relief Thursday. 

The Delaware River and Bay Authority – which operates the bridge – says one of three lanes closed on the Delaware-bound span for emergency work has reopened.  But the left two lanes remain closed and truck traffic is only allowed in the far right lane.

Commuters using the Delaware Memorial Bridge to enter the First State from New Jersey will find major delays over the next few days.

The Delaware River and Bay Authority – which operates the bridge – has closed three of the four lanes on the Delaware-bound span for emergency work.

Construction crews are replacing three suspension ropes in close proximity to each other on that span.
