Chesapeake Transportation System
The Chesapeake Transportation System (CTS) consists of the Chesapeake Expressway and the improved Dominion Boulevard. The CTS will operate as a single facility. By combining operations, we can reduce redundancy and overhead. For information on both roads, visit their respective website below.
The Route 168 Chesapeake Expressway is a fast and convenient 16-mile long, four-lane divided highway linking I-64 in Chesapeake to North Carolina and the Outer Banks.
Dominion Boulevard is the northern section of Route 17 in Chesapeake which connects North Carolina to I-64/464. The recently completed improvement project expanded the road to four lanes and replaced the moveable Steel Bridge with the 95-foot high fixed-span Veterans Bridge.
E-ZPass transponders that are registered to a valid E-ZPass account provide convenience and savings while traveling. The Dominion Boulevard Veterans Bridge uses "open road" tolling, meaning there is no stopping at toll booths. If you have an active E-ZPass account, you will pay less per transaction on Dominion Boulevard. At the Chesapeake Expressway, motorists with a Virginia E-ZPass have the opportunity to sign up for the Chesapeake Expressway Discount Program to save money on frequent trips. Virginia E-ZPass retail transponders are available for purchase at Chesapeake City Treasurer's offices, DMV locations, and select retailers. A retail transponder must be registered with E-ZPass either online at www.EZPassVA.com or by calling 1-877-762-7924. Two new full-service E-ZPass locations are now operating in Norfolk and Portsmouth. View a complete list of where you can purchase an E-ZPass and get more E-ZPass information.
