A bridge connecting New Jersey with a New York City borough will soon go cashless.
The electronic tolling system will debut at the Outerbridge Crossing Wednesday. It is the bridge connecting Perth Amboy with Staten Island.
The Bayonne Bridge went cashless in 2017, and the Goethals Bridge connecting Elizabeth and Staten Island is scheduled to go cashless this fall.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says it will close the eastbound lanes of the Outerbridge overnight next Monday and Tuesday to prepare.
Officials say cashless tolls at the Goethals and Outerbridge crossings will save motorists approximately 200,000 hours a year in travel time, decrease accidents and reduce emissions from idling traffic.
The Associated Press wire services contributed to this report.
