PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — The Delaware River and Bay Authority has again approved a toll increase for drivers on the Delaware Memorial Bridge. 

The first one, approved in December, was vetoed by New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy because the revenue raised went to projects not deemed to be necessary in the name of safety.

There were a few of those, and they're now gone from the capital plan. The $400 million in extra revenue in this new plan will go to making necessary enhancements to the bridge and other facilities.

The round-trip $4 toll will rise to $5 on May 1, with discounts in place for frequent crossers who use E-ZPasses issued in New Jersey and Delaware.
