NEW HOPE, PA – The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission today announced the completion of a new public website that provides more images, improved navigation, and updated content.

The redesigned website may be accessed at the URL address the Commission has employed since 2000: www.drjtbc.org.

The new website was designed using a WordPress content management system. The redesign work was carried out over the course of 2016 by Stokes Creative Group of Vincentown, N.J.

The new website includes the following improvements:

  • Increased responsiveness, giving mobile users access similar to that of desktop users.
  • An online truck permitting app that allows for digital generation of truck permits to truckers crossing the Commission’s bridges with vehicles that exceed weight and dimensional limits.
  • Enhanced navigation to make finding information faster.
  • Use of infographic to quickly explain complex items.
  • Other graphic materials and icons to aide visitor searches for information.
  • Inclusion of an introductory video on the home page that explains the Commission’s origins, service mission and operations.
  • Links to the agency’s E-ZPass service provider, the Scudder Falls Bridge Replacement Project website, and the 511 travel alert systems in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

The Commission’s previous website won a series of industry awards in the years after it went live in 2007. That website was designed and managed by Liquid Interactive of Allentown, PA.  The site’s back end was a proprietary content management system developed by Liquid.

About The Commission
The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission was formed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the State of New Jersey in 1934. It operates seven toll bridges and 13 toll-supported bridges, two of which are pedestrian-only spans. The Commission is a self-supporting public-service agency that receives neither federal nor state tax dollars to finance its projects or operations. Funding for the operations, maintenance and upkeep of its bridges and related transportation facilities is solely derived from revenues collected at its toll bridges. The Commission's jurisdiction extends along the Delaware River from the Philadelphia-Bucks County line north to the New Jersey/New York border. The bridges carried more than 144.5 million cars and trucks in 2016. For more information about the Commission and its various initiatives to deliver safer and more convenient bridge travel for its customers, please see: www.drjtbc.org.
