OCEAN DRIVE BRIDGE TOLLS will increase by $1.50 under the Cape May County Bridge Commission’s plan. The current $1.50 toll will rise by 50 cents in each of the next three years. The county operates a series of bridges linking its barrier islands, and aside from the Ocean City-Longport Bridge, which was constructed in 2002, the rest are drawbridges built in the 1930s and 1940s. Increased toll revenue would help pay for maintenance and repair projects until the drawbridges can be replaced in the future. The last bridge toll increase took place in 2009. SeaIsleNews.com ran an article on the toll increase–you can read it here: https://seaislenews.com/bridge-tolls-increase-1-50-three-year-plan/
WHILE THE TREE LIGHTS ARE ON take a ride along Dune Drive or stroll the 96th Street business district for a mesmerizing sight! Both Avalon and Stone Harbor have extensive holiday decorations in place, and the streets are lined with lights. Christmas trees, wreaths, red bows, and thousands of twinkling lights await you!
