  • Less than 65 feet (19.812m): $1,600
  • 65-80 feet (19.812m-24.384m): $2,400
  • 80-100 feet (24.384m-30.480m): $3,500
  • And more than 100 feet (30.480m): $4,100

Previous tolls were:

  • Less than 50 feet (15.24m): $800
  • 50-80 feet (15.24m-24.384m): $1,300
  • 80-100 feet (24.384m-30.480m): $2,000
  • And more than 100 feet (30.480m): $3,200
