Has the toll rate always been the same? And will it change?

The toll rate increased on May 1, 2011 for the first time since the opening of the Expressway. The City routinely reviews and analyzes the Optimum Toll Rate to meet the requirements of the Bond Indenture. The next toll increase is scheduled for May 1, 2021. Scheduled toll increases are necessary in order to meet financial obligations. The Chesapeake Expressway is part of the Chesapeake Transportation System along with the improved Dominion Boulevard corridor. On July 10, 2012, the Chesapeake City Council approved the initial toll schedule for the Chesapeake Transportation System.
