The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission provides safe, dependable and efficient river crossings between Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
Stretching roughly 140 miles from the Philadelphia/Bucks County, Pa. boundary northward to the New Jersey/New York state line, the Commission's jurisdiction encompasses a diverse geographic region featuring bustling cities, quaint river villages, and scenic portions of the Delaware River where nature's beauty abounds.
Committed to improving the quality of life for area residents, the Commission strives to create a synergy of economic vitality, environmental stewardship, historic preservation, customer service and fiscal accountability.
The Commission's nearly $42 million capital budget for 2014 outlines a wide variety of rehabilitation, improvement and project planning initiatives. The budget lays out a financial blueprint for capital initiatives during the year and future years, including the 2014 stage of the multi-year Easton-Phillipsburg (Route 22) Toll Bridge Rehabilitation Project. This year marks the fourth-consecutive year in which the capital plan has been reduced from the prior year's total. Still, it allows the Commission to meet its goals for advancing the agency's rolling Capital Improvement Program. The thrust of 2014 investments will be for planning and designing projects that will take place in 2015 and beyond. As with all all capital initiatives, these strategic investments will further stimulate the regional economy, provide new job opportunities, enhance safety, reduce congestion, and improve the agency's customer-service capabilities.
