The Scudder Falls (I-295) Toll Bridge’s first completed span opened to traffic during overnight hours July 9th.
Tolling began July 14th (Pennsylvania-bound direction only). The former bridge’s demolition is underway.
A new temporary travel pattern on I-295 and the adjoining interchanges is now completed.
The new bridge’s all-electronic toll collection system charges drivers moving at highway speeds.
There are two ways to pay: E-ZPass, which has lower rates, and TOLL BY PLATE billing through the mail, which has higher rates.
The base E-ZPass car toll is $1.25. The corresponding TOLL BY PLATE rate is $2.60.
Significant fees and penalties are applied if TOLL BY PLATE customers fail to pay their bills on time.
The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission urges Scudder Falls motorists to get E-ZPass from the agency’s affiliated toll processor – the regional New Jersey E-ZPass Customer Service Center – which may be reached at 1-888-AUTO-TOLL or www.ezpassnj.com.
