Commuters will not be paying more to cross the four bridges operated by the Delaware River Port Authority next year.

The agency, which is jointly run by New Jersey and Pennsylvania, passed a $296 million operating budget for 2017 on Wednesday that does not contain any toll increases. That's up from nearly $291 million in 2016.

Most of the increase will cover higher costs for payroll, pensions and health care.

The DRPA anticipates more motorists will cross the Ben Franklin, Walt Whitman, Commodore Barry and Betsy Ross bridges next year. It also is predicting more ridership on PATCO. [[238427591, C]]
