About Tolling

All northbound commercial vehicles over 4,500 kg crossing the Deh Cho Bridge are subject to a toll. Compliance is monitored through on-road patrols and an electronic toll monitoring system, which includes high-resolution cameras for capturing images of all bridge traffic.

There are two payment methods:

  1. Purchase Single-use Toll Permits 
    Single-use toll permits must be purchased prior to crossing the bridge. Permits can be purchased online at https://www.idmv.dot.gov.nt.ca/  or by contacting the scale for permit inquiries at 1-866-225-3505. Commercial carriers may also establish a business relationship with a third party permit issuer.  

    Purchased Toll Rates:
    Toll A (2 - 4 Axles): $98 
    Toll B (5 - 6 Axles): $177  
    Toll C (7 - 8 Axles): $311  
    Toll D (9+ Axles):    $403  

  2. Monthly Payment Remittance 
    Carriers have the option of applying to use the monthly remittance method instead of purchasing single-use toll permits in advance. Questions regarding the Remittance Agreement or general remittance procedures may be directed to: Toll Admin or (867) 874-5000.

    The benefits of the remittance method are numerous. By remitting a single payment for all crossings in a given month, accounting and payment procedures will be simplified. Further, remittance users will enjoy considerable savings compared to purchasers of single-use toll permits.

    Remitted Toll Rates:
    Toll A (2 - 4 Axles): $79 
    Toll B (5 - 6 Axles): $159  
    Toll C (7 - 8 Axles): $292  
    Toll D (9+ Axles)    :$385  

    To apply for the Monthly Deh Cho Bridge Remittance Program, complete the Remittance Application  in full and return to the Department of Transportation. Once an application is approved, carriers using the monthly remittance method must report all northbound trips. Approved carriers must also register and install an approved transponder in every vehicle crossing the bridge. Transponders must be obtained from International Road Dynamics (IRD) by calling toll-free at 1 (877) 444-4473 or by email to Transponder.

    Remittance Applications can be sent by e-mail to Toll Admin  or by mail to:
