Tolls raised 50 cents on Cape May County bridges

Wednesday saw a price increase on the five bridges that carry Ocean Drive in Cape May County. It will now cost $2.50 to cross in the toll direction of the Middle Thorofare Bridge between Wildwood Crest and Cape May, The Great Channel Bridge in the Grassy Sound area of Middle Township between North Wildwood and Stone Harbor, The Townsend’s Inlet Bridge linking Sea Isle City to Avalon, the Corson’s Inlet Bridge between Strathmere and south Ocean City, and the Ocean City-Longport Bridge on the city’s north side. The increases have actually been planned for a time, this is the second of a three-stage plan to increase the fares, tolls are planned to increase another 50 cents next year. The Cape May County Bridge Commission says it is necessary to maintain the spans, some of which date back to the 1930s and 40s.
