VDOT resumes cash-exchange at Powhite Parkway and Coleman Bridge tolls

Local News

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The Virginia Department of Transportation announced it has resumed full-service manned tolls on the Powhite Parkway Extension and George P. Coleman Memorial Bridge.

VDOT said it resumed cash-exchange service at these tolls because of a recent increase in traffic volume resulting from the region entering Phase Two of reopening.

Here are the steps they are taking to keep employees safe:

  • These toll booths have had transparent barriers installed at collection windows to separate employees and drivers
  • Workers have been given face masks, gloves and hand sanitizer.
  • Additional cleaning procedures have been implemented.

However, VDOT still recommends drivers use electronic toll payment methods, like E-ZPass, to reduce person to person contact.
