South Norfolk Jordan Bridge Tolls Going Up

The Virginian-Pilot reports, “Tolls at the South Norfolk Jordan Bridge are going up 25 cents next year to $2.25. The increase takes effect Jan. 1. [On Monday, December 5], the Chesapeake Transportation Toll Facility Advisory Committee [link added] held a public hearing on the increase, but no one attended.” The newspaper adds that tolls started at two dollars when the bridge opened in 2012, “but then dropped to a promotional price of $1 in 2013, before rising to $1.50, $1.75 and back to the current rate. General Manager Kevin Crum said the goal is to have fair, reasonable increases over time.”
