ERC Tunnels Will See Record Toll Rate Increases in 2017

The Virginian-Pilot reports, “Tolls at the Midtown and Downtown tunnels are set for their biggest increases, 32 percent, since tolling was re-introduced in 2014.” The newspaper adds, “The new rates begin Jan. 1 and are part of Elizabeth River Crossings’ annual toll increases. The larger increase is due to the state’s toll ‘buy down’ deal expiring this year.”
