VDOT Holds Public Meetings About Proposed I-95 Tolls

Posted: Updated:

Richmond, VA—The Virginia Department of Transportation will hold three public informational meetings, to give updates on the latest proposal to improve Interstate 95 in Virginia, which includes a potential tolling location in Sussex County. 

During the meeting, citizens will have the chance to learn more about the proposal, ask questions and give feedback and comments.

Of the proposal, VDOT says: "Revenue from toll collections would be a funding source to help pay for improvements such as rehabilitating aging bridges, pavements and other needs.  Toll revenues raised at the Sussex County location would go toward I-95 improvements south of Richmond."

VDOT also notes that Virginia is one of three states approved by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to develop a tolling proposal.  FHWA is currently reviewing the commonwealth's proposal to toll I-95.
