Deh Cho Bridge tolls and commercial trucking fees waived for an additional month before resuming

Public Service Announcement

Yellowknife — September 28, 2020

As part of the Government of Northwest Territories’ (GNWT) economic relief measures, Deh Cho Bridge tolls and commercial truck permit fees will continue to be waived until October 31, 2020. As of November 1, 2020, those fees will resume.

This includes purchased and remitted Deh Cho Bridge tolls, fees for over-dimension permits (single and annual), overweight permits, and special permits for large trucks.

Drivers will notice a 1.6 per cent increase to the Deh Cho Bridge tolls compared to the rates that were in effect prior to April 1, 2020. This increase, which occurs annually in accordance with the NWT Consumer Price Index, came into effect on April 1, 2020. However, due to the evolving COVID-19 situation, all toll rates and noted permit fees were waived from March 2020. 

Tolls on the Deh Cho Bridge only apply to northbound commercial vehicles weighing over 4,500 kilograms. Compliance is monitored through on-road patrols and an electronic toll monitoring system, which includes cameras for capturing images of all-bridge traffic.

As announced previously, airport fees including aircraft landing fees, lease fees, and licence fees for all businesses operating at NWT airports will continue to be waived until December 31, 2020. These measures will be implemented automatically and there is no application process.
