Tolls at Rockaways bridges resume
NEW YORK -- Toll collections have resumed at two bridges in the storm-damaged Rockaways section of Queens.
The MTA says tolls began being collected starting 12:01 a.m. Saturday at the Marine Parkway-Gil Hodges Memorial Bridge and the Cross Bay Veterans Memorial Bridge.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo suspended the tolls on Nov. 4. The loss of train service after Superstorm Sandy made it hard for residents to get back and forth.
Shuttle buses are now operating between Howard Beach and Mott Ave.-Far Rockaway. Shuttle train service is running on the peninsula.
The Marine Parkway bridge links the peninsula with Brooklyn.
The Cross Bay connects the peninsula with the rest of Queens.
The car tolls are $3.25 cash or $1.80 with E-ZPass.
