HB2951: Tolls; VDOT to impose and collect for use of Route 17 in City of Chesapeake.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of Virginia:
1. § 1. The Commonwealth Transportation Board shall fix, revise, and collect tolls for the use of U.S. Route 17 in the City of Chesapeake and shall authorize such reconfiguration of U.S. Route 17 in the City of Chesapeake as may be necessary or desirable to permit the collection of such tolls. The schedule of toll rates shall consider results of a financing study undertaken jointly by the City of Chesapeake and the Virginia Department of Transportation that will evaluate appropriate tolling options for financing the cost of the reconfiguration of the highway, replacement of the "Steel Bridge" on U.S. Route 17 over the Southern Branch of the Elizabeth River, and widening of Dominion Boulevard in the City of Chesapeake; however, toll rates for vehicles having three or more axles shall not be lower than $3 per trip.
2. That the provisions of this act shall become effective upon concurrence and approval of the Federal Highway Administration.
