Breathe easier, beach goers: The five bridges that link shore towns in of Cape May County will finally get long-promised E-ZPass.
The Cape May County Bridge Commission had allocated half a million for the project last February and had set a target of June for completion.
But the work went slow. When summer hit, all work stopped, but the agency is now back on track.
The Ocean City-Longport Bridge, which connects to Somers Point and a bayside portion of Egg Harbor Township, should be completed within two months, officials say.
The rest of the projects should be completed by mid-spring.
The additional bridges are: Middle Thorofare Bridge connecting Cape May and Wildwood Crest; Grassy Sound Bridge linking North Wildwood and Stone Harbor; Townsends Inlet Bridge between Avalon and Sea Isle City and the Corsons Inlet Bridge between Strathmere and Ocean City.
Officials will discuss the electronic toll project at a commision meeting on Thursday.
