The state is also suspending tolls on the Connecticut Turnpike, Interstate 95 and Interstate 295.
In addition, the state is requiring drivers to pay tolls and fees on all toll roadways.
On Friday, the governor announced he would impose a five-day suspension of all tolls from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., but it is not clear whether he will lift the suspension at the same time.
It is also not clear how long the state would be able to suspend the tolls, which were imposed in 2013 as part of the transportation funding deal between Mr Trump and Mr Christie.
The governor said he would be willing to “take additional measures to mitigate the impact” of the suspension.
“There is no indication that any specific measures are required or available to us at this time,” a statement from the governor said.
Mr Trump’s office has said he will veto any highway bill that does not repeal or limit the toll on the highways.
Mr Christie has also faced criticism for not vetoing a highway bill passed by his Republican-led state legislature last year.
