PENNSVILLE, N.J. (CBS) — A plan to increase the toll on the Delaware Memorial Bridge by $1 is no longer happening. Gov. Phil Murphy has vetoed it.

Last month, the Delaware River and Bay Authority Board approved increasing the toll from $4 to $5 per passenger vehicle, despite warnings of a possible veto from the governor’s office.
