The Details

The six-lane Throgs Neck Bridge is a massive suspension structure over the East River that connects two New York City boroughs, Queens and the Bronx. Its main purpose was to relieve active traffic on the Bronx Whitestone Bridge, which is only two miles away. Today, Trogs Neck is the property of the New York City government, which performs not only administrative functions, but also ongoing maintenance, repair, and rehabilitation.

Features of the Throgs Neck Bridge

The bridge opened in early 1961. It is considered the most modern of all the structures that are over the East River. It was designed by engineer Othmar Ammann, who has designed several bridges in New York City.

This bridge is the third bridge that connects the Bronx and Queens. Several main features can be highlighted:

  • The center span is 1,800 feet long;
  • The length of the bridge together with the approaches is about 2 miles;
  • Exit ramp heights in the Bronx and Queens are 3,900 feet and 2,800 feet, respectively;
  • The total length together with the bindings is 2,910 feet;
  • three full lanes for each direction (six in total);
  • 4-foot-wide barriers are installed between the directions to ensure driver comfort and safety while driving;
  • The width of the roadway in one direction is 37 feet;
  • The roadway is paved with modern asphalt;
  • The distance between the mount and the support is 555 feet.

Throgs Neck is one of the few bridges in New York City that prohibits bicycle and pedestrian traffic. Use of the roads is toll-free for all vehicle owners. Previously, the toll was only on the Bronx side, but now it applies to all directions (the decision was made after the bridge was rebuilt in 2017 and an automatic toll system was installed).

How much is the fare?

Starting in mid-spring 2021, the toll from each vehicle type is $10.17. When it comes to motorcyclists, the one-time fee for them will be $4.28. The E-ZPass system is used for payment. If transponders are issued in New York, the fare is $6.55 and $2.85, respectively.

For other mid-level users, fees are $8.36 and $3.57. If transponders are issued by other state offices, payment is by mail only after receipt of the appropriate document.

Love the app, use it every week
Saved our day when we were on a trip and had to take a toll road on our way home
This App allows us worry-free travel on TOLL ROADS...Automatically replenishing our account, notifying us of Automatically paying our access to the Toll Road. Great relief from expensive citations for not paying while driving. Thank you. P.S. A receipt is always sent to us.
I find this app a good way to track my tolls and manage my budget. Works great for this.
The app saves me a ton extra minutes every day. Took the worry out of paying our tolls. Thank you🌴
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.
Been going back to the office a little so been driving more. This is great.
