Tolling on the Dominion Boulevard Veterans Bridge will begin on Thursday, February 9, 2017, at 12:01 a.m., following the completion of a comprehensive toll system testing period. Tolls will be collected electronically using E-ZPass transponders or through a photographic, toll-by-plate system. The passenger vehicle toll rate will begin at $1.00 with an E-ZPass and $3.00 without an E-ZPass. The multi-year schedule, showing all vehicle types and sizes, is available at www.DominionBoulevard.com.
Motorists can obtain their E-ZPass online at www.EZPassVA.com, by phone at 1-877-762-7824 or in person at any Chesapeake City Treasurer's Office, the Chesapeake Expressway Office or at the Norfolk or Portsmouth E-ZPass office.
Those who already have an E-ZPass are encouraged to make sure their transponder is registered to an account and that it is properly funded, preferably through auto-replenishment. E-ZPass customers who have insufficient funds when they use the Dominion Boulevard Veterans Bridge will be charged the non E-ZPass rate.
The Dominion Boulevard Improvement Project, the largest locally administered project in the history of the Commonwealth, was completed ahead of schedule and under budget. It reached substantial completion in November 2016, when all four lanes from Grassfield Parkway to I-64 opened to motorists. In addition to widening the road from two to four lanes, the project replaced the moveable Steel Bridge with the 95-ft high, fixed-span Veterans Bridge. Interchanges were constructed at Cedar Road, Dominion Lakes Boulevard and Great Bridge Boulevard.
