The Details

The Tacony Palmyra Bridge is an arch-type steel bascule structure that connects the states of New Jersey and Pennsylvania. It was built in just a year and a half by the famous architect Ralph Modjeski and was officially opened in mid-August 1929. The main purpose of the construction was to replace the outdated Delaware River ferry service that connected Palmyra and Tacony. This double-barreled bridge is now in high demand by motorists.

Features of the Tacony Palmyra Bridge

Today, ownership of the bridge belongs to the respective Burlington (New Jersey) Circle Commission, and they are also responsible for regular maintenance and repairs. Several basic parameters of the structure can be distinguished:

  • The total length is 3,660 feet and the width is 38 feet;
  • The length of the spans is 2,325 feet;
  • There are a total of three lanes, which were improved as a result of a reconstruction in 1997;
  • 50,000 vehicles pass over the bridge every day;
  • Two lanes provide traffic in the north direction, one in the south direction.

Separately, there are safe paths for cyclists and pedestrians. In the eastern part (relative to the main arch) there is a drawbridge mechanism. In 2013, it broke down due to jamming of the rollers, which caused traffic on the bridge to stop for almost 11 hours, leading to serious traffic jams.

How much is the bridge toll?

Today, tolls are mandatory for every vehicle owner. If you choose to pay by cash, the one-time payment is $4. If you use the modern E-ZPass system, you will need to pay $3 (fares are for northbound Pennsylvania traffic).

The only disadvantage is the need to stop in the event of a divorce for large water traffic on the Delaware River under the bridge, which drivers are alerted to by barriers and traffic lights. This doesn't take too long and is compensated for by the fact that the Betsy Ross Alternative Bridge fare is $5 regardless of the toll option chosen.

To improve the infrastructure of the bridge and its partial reconstruction in 2016, it was decided to restore a number of elements, replace traffic lights, barriers, and other traffic control systems.

Better than a toll tag, I use one app on both vehicles and will link my wife's car next week. Easy to travel to other states, since you're registered with all toll authorities they cover.
