ANNAPOLIS, Md. — All tolling across Maryland will now permanently be done electronically.

Drivers will never have to stop again to pay tolls at the John F. Kennedy Memorial Highway (I-95), Fort McHenry Tunnel (I-95), Baltimore Harbor Tunnel (I-895), and Nice/Middleton Bridge (US 301).

Fees will be collected through E-ZPass and video tolling, meaning less traffic and emissions.

Temporary electronic tolling was installed statewide in March as part of Maryland's COVID-19 response.

Toll booths were permanently eliminated from the Bay Bridge in May following construction, while other state roadways including the Intercounty Connector (MD 200), I-95 Express Toll Lanes in Baltimore, and the Key (I-695) and Hatem (US 40) bridges, already have electronic tolling.

Drivers without an E-ZPass will be billed by mail at cash rates.
