Tolled Areas

More than 100,000 drivers use the Midtown and Downtown tunnels daily. To increase capacity and rehabilitate the existing tunnels, VDOT partnered with Elizabeth River Crossings to deliver the Elizabeth River Tunnels Project with tolling as a funding source for the Project. Driving through the Midtown and Downtown tunnels you will notice “gantries” over the roadway on the Portsmouth side of the tunnels. The “gantries” collect the tolls electronically so that drivers may maintain speeds and the road can operate more safely and efficiently than with toll booths.
