Delaware River & Bay Authority (DRBA) was created by Compact in
1962. The DRBA, overseen by six commissioners from New Jersey and six
from Delaware, is charged with providing vital transportation links
between the two states as well as economic development in Delaware and
the four southern counties of New Jersey.
To fulfill these missions, the DRBA operates the Delaware Memorial Bridge, the Cape May-Lewes Ferry, the Delaware City - Salem Ferry, the Riverfront Marketplace, the Salem County Business Center and five regional airports—New
Castle, Civil Air Terminal at Dover AFB, and Delaware Airpark, all in
Delaware, and Millville and Cape May, both in New Jersey.
