Dover — This past weekend over 800,000 motorists passed through Delaware’s three toll plaza locations on I-95 in Newark, and on Route 1 at Biddle’s Corner and Dover during the traditional four-day start-of-summer Holiday.
Over 60 percent of the counted trips utilized the convenience of E-ZPass, the electronic toll collection system. Motorists can make their trips on I-95 and Route 1 more convenient by maintaining an E-ZPass account. To get an E-ZPass account, go to E-ZPass Delaware. Customers can also register for an E-ZPass account in person at any Toll Plaza customer service center 24-hours a day, or by calling 1-888-397-2773 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays, and from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.
From Friday, May 24 through Monday, May 27, the I-95 Newark Plaza served 396,108 vehicles; 221,824 vehicles were served at Route 1 Biddle’s Corner; and 191,249 at Dover’s Route 1 Plaza. It is estimated that over $1.7 million was collected in tolls during the four-day period at Delaware’s toll plazas.
