The Route 168 Chesapeake Expressway is a fast and convenient 16 mile long, four-lane divided highway linking Interstate 64 in Chesapeake to North Carolina and the Outer Banks.
For your convenience, the toll for the Chesapeake Expressway may be paid using cash or an E-ZPass transponder. Only vehicles with an E-ZPass transponder are authorized to use the Express Lane which is the far left lane and does not require stopping. The Chesapeake Expressway does not bill by plate.
The Bridges Division will close a single lane on southbound Chesapeake Expressway for inspection work on Monday, July 18 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The closure will start at the Benefit Rd overpass and will proceed south to the Indian Creek Rd overpass. Motorists should be alert to work crews, equipment in the area and possible delays.
