CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) — There might be some toll shock for New Jersey residents heading to Philadelphia for Fourth of July festivities and Pennsylvanians returning from the Jersey shore after the long holiday weekend.

Tolls on the Delaware River Port Authority’s four Philadelphia-area bridges jumped a dollar to $5 on Friday.

Tolls are paid only by westbound drivers.

Dray Clark reports…

The port authority also hiked fares by 10 percent Friday on its PATCO train line that connects Camden County with Philadelphia. The highest one-way fare is now $3.

DRPA commissioners attempted to put off the increases but were told by financial analysts that doing so could ruin the agency’s credit rating.
