DRJTBC Toll Rate Hearings Go Smoothly

Standard-Speaker (Hazleton, PA) previews the next two in a series of toll rate hearings the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission has scheduled. The commission is soliciting public comment on a proposal to increase tolls on pickup trucks with dual-wheel rear axles (“dualies”) and recreational vehicles towing a trailer or another vehicle. It is also seeking input on its proposal to toll the Scudder Falls Bridge replacement that is now under construction. Newspaper accounts of earlier hearings suggest that the proposals will not arouse much opposition or controversy.
