The Portland–Columbia Toll Bridge is a toll bridge that carries New Jersey Route 94 (which ends at the Pennsylvania State Line over the river) over the Delaware River, between Pennsylvania Route 611 at Portland, Pennsylvania and Columbia in Knowlton Township, New Jersey, United States. It is owned and operated by the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission. U.S. Route 46 merges with Interstate 80 just north of the bridge on the New Jersey approach.
The bridge opened for public use on December 1, 1953. The main span is a 1,309-foot (399 m) long, ten-span steel girder system, supported by reinforced concrete piers and concrete bin abutments. The bridge is 32 feet (9.8 m) wide from curb to curb. There is no sidewalk on the bridge. The Portland–Columbia Pedestrian Bridge is located 1,000 feet (300 m) upstream of the Portland–Columbia Toll Bridge.
A three-lane toll plaza is located on the Pennsylvania side of the bridge, serving westbound traffic only. The cash toll for automobiles is $1.00. An E-ZPass Commuter 40% discount is available to those making 20 or more trips in 35 days.
The Delaware Water Gap Toll Bridge, Portland–Columbia Toll Bridge and the Milford–Montague Toll Bridge were all constructed simultaneously by the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission, with work on all three started on October 15, 1951, and all three bridge openings spaced approximately every two weeks in December 1953.
