PennDOT owns and maintains approximately 25,400 bridges and supports another 6,600 local bridges. Maintaining them in a state of good repair is critical for the safety of the traveling public as well as an investment in economic development and quality of life for residents.

Bridge tolling is the collection of revenue from those who use a bridge, the funds from which would be used for the replacement or reconstruction and long-term maintenance of the facility.

Federal tolling legislation (23 USC 129) is in place to allow States to toll bridges for the purpose of replacement or rehabilitation.

In Pennsylvania, tolling authority requires authorization through either the Pennsylvania Legislature or the Pennsylvania Public-Private Partnership (P3) Board (Act 88 of 2012). The P3 law, as amended by Act 84 of 2022, permits optional tolling via P3 contracts.
