DOVER, Del.– Tolls will increase on Route 1 for weekend traffic effective 7 p.m. Aug. 1, the Delaware Department of Transportation announced Monday. The increase will be $1 above the current weekend toll rates for all vehicle classes, except oversize loads. Route 1 ramp tolls in Smyrna and Dover will not change and all E-ZPass frequent user discounts will remain in effect, DelDOT said.

DelDOT said Delaware Code gives it the authority to set toll rates. However, the department noted that the choice to increase the Route 1 tolls at this time was made in consultation with the Delaware General Assembly. The new revenue will be used to fund paving and other transportation projects statewide. The added revenue will be supplemented with an additional $20 million in borrowing in fiscal year 2015.

* Weekend toll rates on Route 1 are effective from 7 p.m. Fridays through 11 p.m. on Sunday nights.

The fee for the Route 1 access ramp at Smyrna will remain at 25 cents for Class 2 passenger vehicles and 25 cents per axle for all commercial class vehicles.

Delaware E-ZPass customers will also continue to receive current discount rates. The 50 percent discount for frequent passenger vehicle users who meet the standard of 30-trips-in-30-days will remain in effect. Additionally, commercial vehicles using E-ZPass will continue to receive a 25 percent discount, DelDOT said.
