NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - It’s costing motorists more to cross the Hudson River.

Tolls on the bridges and tunnels operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey increased on Sunday.

It’s the fourth of five phased-in toll increases that began in 2011.

Drivers will pay $14 in cash lanes, up from $13, and E-ZPass tag holders will pay an extra 75 cents.

The American Automobile Associations of New York and North Jersey had sued to block the toll increase, saying it violated federal law because the money was used partly to cover redevelopment of the World Trade Center.

A federal judge last month refused to stop the increase.
