    Drivers who use the Chesapeake Bay Bridge get a temporary financial break. 

    WTOP Radio reported a toll hike planned for October first is delayed.

    The Maryland Transportation Authority is working on a plan that will double the tolls by July 2013.

    The authority has reportedly received a deluge of public comments during a series of hearings throughout the state.

    The first part of the hike was scheduled for October 1. Since the plan won't be ready for a vote this month, the toll hike won't take place until November at the earliest.

    Rules require at least 30-days notice of any hikes.

    Most cars pay $2.50 one-way to cross the bridge now.
