Tacony-Palmyra Bridge
« on: February 10, 2020, 10:14:42 PM »

Added a blog post on the Tacony-Palmyra Bridge that crosses the Delaware River between Tacony, a neighborhood of northeast Philadelphia with Palmyra in New Jersey. There is a highway designation of PA 73 or NJ 73, depending on which side of the river you're on.

The original toll of the bridge was 5 cents. It doubled to 10 cents in the 1950s.

There's a fairly new brewery nearby that chose it's name based on this toll increase: Double Nickel Brewery, at the interchange of 73 and 130 near the bridge.

Tacony-Palmyra was (is?) much cheaper than the other crossing between Philadelphia & South Jersey. The T-P was the preferred crossing for my grandparents when we all went over (from the Main Line) to see my great-aunt in Moorestown, NJ

$4 cash,  $3 EZ Pass.  The DRPA Bridges are $5 Cash/EZ Pass.

I take the Bristol Bridge is also $4 and $3 as well being both part of the Burlington County Bridge System?
