CHERRY HILL, N.J. (AP) - The cost of commuting will stay the same for motorists who use bridges operated by the Delaware River Port Authority.

The DRPA on Wednesday approved an $89 million budget that holds the line on tolls on its four bridges. The board deferred raising the $5 roundtrip toll for at least another two years.

The Courier-Post of Cherry Hill (https://on.cpsj.com/1Ak7dv2 ) reports vice chairman Jeffrey Nash says the next goal is to find a way to enact a commuter discount.

Nash says the authority is in a strong financial position after reducing debt service and lowering costs through efficiencies.

Operation expenses are expected to increase nearly $3 million, mainly to cover higher health care and pension costs for the DRPA’s approximately 850 employees.
