The process will not change for drivers who have an E-ZPass tag. The equipment in the lane will still read the E-ZPass and the cost of the toll will be deducted from your account.
If you don’t have an E-ZPass, the equipment in the lane will take a photograph of the vehicle’s license plate and a toll invoice will be mailed to the registered owner. You will be billed at the cash toll rate and no additional administrative fees will be charged.
