At its November 13, 2018 meeting, the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and Tunnel Commission voted to approve a toll rate increase, effective January 1, 2019. This toll rate increase is compliant with the resolution that was adopted by the Commission in August 2013, by which the Commission approved a toll rate increase effective January 2014 and approximate 10% increases every five years thereafter. These toll rate increases were approved to fund the acceleration of the project procurement, award and contract of the Parallel Thimble Shoal Project from 2021 to 2016.
The Chesapeake Bay Bridge and Tunnel District will host a series of public information meetings for the purpose of informing the public about the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel Commission Parallel Thimble Shoal Tunnel Project Toll Rate Schedule Revisions effective January 1, 2019, as well as to provide a general overview on the Parallel Thimble Shoal Tunnel Project.
