Coming In 2016
New Toll Paves Way for New Connection
The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission (PTC) will introduce its first-ever cashless tolling facility in January 2016 at the Turnpike Bridge over the Delaware River in Bucks County in southeastern Pennsylvania. This new non-stop highway speed toll installation will allow the Commission to evaluate technologies, systems and procedures before further implementation occurs.
This new cashless toll facility will assess tolls as vehicles pass under an overhead gantry at highway speed for westbound-traffic only just after crossing the bridge. As with most tolled bridges in the region, the toll will be charged for travel in only one direction. The start- and end-point of the PTC’s trip-based system will move to a different location about six miles to the west. A new mainline toll plaza, called the Neshaminy Falls Toll Plaza, will become the eastern terminus — or the beginning and end — of the Turnpike’s ticket system. It will be located at milepost 353, about two miles east of the existing Bensalem Interchange.
This initiative reflects our mission to operate a safe, reliable, customer-valued toll-road system that supports national mobility and commerce.
