Uniform Rates for RVs Towing Trailers or Cars to Start June 1

Effective June 1, uniform toll rates will be charged for recreational vehicles (RVs) that have either a trailer or passenger vehicle in tow.  This could result in higher rates for some RV owners.  Toll rates for RVs with a trailer or passenger vehicle in tow will be towed based on the Commission's established vehicular classification factors:  vehicle height and number of rolling axles.   (There are exceptions: pickup trucks towing trailers with a 5th wheel or "gooseneck" configuration  are classified by the total number of axles involved in the transaction regardless of the lead vehicle's height.)

The following toll rates shall apply for RVs regardless of whether toll payment is made electronically through E-ZPass or manually in cash through a toll attendant:

Example Classification Per-axle rate Toll
Two-axle RV with single rolling axle trailer or vehicle in tow with on axle down Class 3 (3 rolling axles) $4 $12
Two-axle RV with dual rolling axle trailer or vehicle in tow with two axles down Class 4 (4 rolling axles) $4 $16
Three-axle RV with single rolling axle trailer or vehicle in tow with one axle down Class 4 (4 rolling axles) $4 $16
Three-axle RV with single rolling axle trailer or vehicle in tow with two axles down Class 5 (5 rolling axles) $4 $20

Note:  In any subsequent larger configurations of RVs and trailers/vehicles in tow, a toll rate of $4 per axle is to be charged.

Weekday Closures of Centre Bridge-Stockton Bridge's Walkway Continue Week of May 28

The Centre Bridge-Stockton Bridge's walkway will be open 24/7 over the Memorial Day weekend.  Weekday closures of the Centre Bridge-Stockton Bridge's pedestrian walkway will recommence Tuesday, May 30, and continue for the rest of week so so maintenance crews can continue replacing the worn and warped wood decking.  The walkway will be closed 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. on weekdays -- weather permitting -- for the replacement work.  Bicyclists and pedestrians are urged to find alternative means of crossing the river during walkway shutdown periods; as the vehicular lanes are restricted to motorized vehicles only.  The bridge's walkway is reopened to public use during evening hours and weekends, when usage rates are highest.
