Local Tolls & E-ZPass

Elizabeth River Tunnels Tolls

The Elizabeth River Tunnels are the fastest way for Monarchs to cross the Elizabeth River between Norfolk and Portsmouth. There is the Downtown Tunnel (I-264) and the Midtown Tunnel (US 58). Both tunnels are tolled via All-Electronic Tolling, which is designed to allow the free-flow of traffic traveling to and from Norfolk and Portsmouth. Tolls are collected through the overhead toll gantries on the roadway.


Toll Payment Options


E-ZPass Logo

E-ZPass offers the maximum amount of savings on tolls at the Elizabeth River Tunnels and it works on toll roads across 18 states. There are no monthly fees, and the transponder device is free - every penny of the $35 you pay to set it up your account goes towards your tolls. Start saving 65% on each trip today

Toll Payment Apps

With mobile toll payment apps like GoToll, Slora and Uproad, you can save over 60% on each trip through the Elizabeth River Tunnels.



If you choose to travel through the Downtown or Midtown Tunnels without an E-ZPass, or without using a toll payment app, you will be billed as a Pay by Plate customer, in which an image of your license plate is captured, and a bill will be sent to the home address your vehicle is registered to within 30 days of your trip. The bill will include the toll plus a processing fee. Pay by Plate statements can be paid online at www.DriveERT.com or over the phone, by calling (757) 837-0840.
