NY-NJ port raises tolls

| August 22, 2011

In a deal struck Aug. 19 by the governors of New York and New Jersey and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey tolls on bridges and tunnels jump $10 in September.

The toll for E-ZPass customers during peak hours will increase from $40 to $50 for a 5-axle truck and by another $2 an axle each December in 2012 through 2015. Cash customers get hit harder, paying a penalty of $3 per axle. The tolls apply to eastbound crossings.

The current E-ZPass off-peak fee is $35 and the overnight fee is $27.50. The overnight window will be expanded to 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Most of the revenue raised will go to development projects, including the World Trade Center reconstruction in Manhattan.
