RFK Toll Plaza Reconstruction

The $250 million (USD) reconstruction of the Bronx Toll Plaza represents the final component in the rehabilitation of the Robert F. Kennedy (RFK) Bridge mainline between Queens and the Bronx, NY. A key component of the reconstruction of this Toll Plaza structure will be minimizing the disruption to the 200,000 vehicles that use the facility every day.

This project also presents the Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority (TBTA) with an opportunity to take advantage of the latest developments in toll collection concepts to address the existing congestion and operational issues at the Bronx facility while planning for the growth in traffic volume and vehicle loadings expected over the next 50 years.

The rehabilitation includes the complete replacement of the bridge deck and some of the supporting superstructure elements of the Bronx Plaza. The main girders, bridge piers and foundations of the structure will remain but existing deficiencies will be repaired. The substructures and foundations will be seismically retrofitted to meet current standards. A major component of the Bronx Plaza reconstruction will be the replacement of the existing toll booths with a new toll plaza that can provide the Authority with the flexibility to modify toll collection operations to take advantage of future technological advances.
