Remaining Bridges And Tunnels Toll Booths Removed From Harlem To Hollis

NY Curbed reports that at 3 a.m. on Saturday morning, the last of the MTA’s bridges and tunnels with toll booths began receiving cashless tolling systems, making that portion of the New York Crossing Project complete.

The city’s last two crossings with toll booths were the Bronx-Whitestone Bridge and the Throgs Neck Bridge but after today, toll booths will fade into New York City’s history, reports the New York Post.

Tollbooths at the Henry Hudson Bridge, RFK Triborough Bridge, Queens Midtown Tunnel, Hugh L. Carey Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, Marine Parkway-Gil Hodges Memorial Bridge, and Cross Bay Veterans Memorial Bridge have already been removed and replaced with sensors and cameras that automatically charges vehicles with E-Z Pass.

Those without an E-Z Pass will receive a bill in the mail and have 30 days to pay up before late payment violations, which can go up to $100, go into effect.

According to state officials, cashless tolls have already saved drivers over 2.1 million hours of travel time since they went into effect in January 2017. It’s also resulted in about $2.4 million worth of saved fuel and much less carbon dioxide emissions.
