Premier John Horgan made the announcement last week, making good on his campaign promise to, in his words, save families who regularly cross the Fraser River an average of $1,500 a year.

You will need to pay your bill for tolls up to Aug. 31.

The tolling system and the cameras have been turned off on the bridges. Crews are removing tolling signs.
