Just in time for summer traveling, tolls will increase at midnight Friday on the Delaware Memorial Bridge.
The new rate for passenger cars and small trucks will rise from $3 to $4, and for commercial vehicles it will be $5 per axle, according to the Delaware River and Bay Authority.
The authority said it expects the new tolls to generate approximately $22 million in revenue to fund a capital improvement program.
At about 11:55 p.m. Friday, southbound traffic headed into Delaware may experience a delay as the new toll rates are programmed into the system, the authority reported.
Among the planned improvement projects are a $29 million phase of the ongoing I-295 highway improvement program; more than $51 million for various upgrades to the bridge; and $15 million for dock and other work at the Cape May-Lewes Ferry.
