Come January 31st only an E-ZPass or cash will get you across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.

Traffic backups late last year produced cashless tolling during the peak travel times going into the weekend.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that drivers were sent a standard $4 bill in the mail.

But with less traffic during the winter months standard tolls will take effect 24/7.

Meanwhile, the Maryland Department of Transportation says it will begin removing some toll booths permanently closing lanes 3, 4 and 5 in the work zone creating wider lanes through the plaza.

State authorities are hoping to go all-electronic by this summer with overhead toll gantries on the Eastern Shore side of the bridge.
