The Chesapeake Expressway
CHESAPEAKE EXPRESSWAY TOLL ALERTAs an important safety measure during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Chesapeake Expressway will temporarily stop accepting cash and credit cards at the toll booths effective Friday, March 27 at noon until further notice. Tolls will still be required, but will be collected through an electronic process. For customers who do not have an E-ZPass account or use the GoToll mobile app, the toll system will capture an image of the license plate and a bill will be mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle. As part of this initiative, customers should continue driving through the toll plaza and pay attention to overhead and portable signs. Normal cash toll collection will resume as soon as it becomes safe for motorists and our staff members. Please see the information below regarding E-ZPass and the GoToll mobile app.
ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICE CLOSUREAll City of Chesapeake buildings, including the Chesapeake Expressway Administrative offices and City Hall, are CLOSED to the public until further notice. For more information and updates regarding COVID-19, visit the City's COVID-19 information page.
GOTOLL APP NOW AVAILABLEIn light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Chesapeake Expressway recommends the use of the new GoToll mobile app for those who do not have an E-ZPass account. Using GoToll will allow the customer to use the E-ZPass only lanes, which will eliminate personal interaction at a toll booth and still allow for the toll to be paid. Customers can now download the GoToll app to pay for transactions as they use the Chesapeake Expressway (and specific Virginia toll facilities.) Simply download the app and register for an account. GoToll allows customers to pay for tolls on a per-trip basis. Customers can plan their trips, get real time toll prices and email themselves a receipt. To get started: 1. Download GoToll from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store 2. Add your license plate and credit card information. 3. Drive through cashless toll lanes where GoToll is accepted. Visit the GoToll website to learn where you can use GoToll.
