VDOT Gives Up FHWA Tolling Pilot Slot as Oregon Gets in Line

WTOP reports, “Virginia has given up its special federal exemption that would have allowed toll booths on Interstate 95 between Fredericksburg and the North Carolina line.” The report adds that VDOT Commissioner Charles Kilpatrick told FHWA in a letter that “based on changes in law and our new project development and rating process we are no longer considering the I-95 corridor for tolling under this program.”

As TRN noted yesterday, The Oregonian reports that Oregon DOT is expressing interest in taking one of the three pilot program slots.
