Four major bridges connecting Pennsylvania and New Jersey will reopen cash toll lanes on Monday.

Beginning at 6 a.m. on May 11, the order will go in effect at the Ben Franklin, Walt Whitman, Betsy Ross and Commodore Barry Bridges, according to the Delaware River Port Authority.

Motorists traveling through the cash toll lanes will notice safety measures, such as staff wearing face coverings and a protective plastic shield in the toll booth window. In addition, drivers are encouraged to wear a face covering as they travel through a cash toll lane.
The reopening of cash lanes follows a temporary all electronic (cash-less) tolling, which was implemented on March 26.

DRPA recommends motorists keep informed with the latest conditions at DRPA’s bridges by following the agency’s social media accounts and signing up for travel text alerts. Both provide timely alerts and advisory messages events affecting bridge travel such as travel restrictions, significant disruptions, motor vehicle crashes and hazardous conditions.
