The time? February 2014. The place? Norfolk/Portsmouth, Virginia. The tolls of the downtown and midtown tunnels began and ever since then the prices have gone up.
Looks like there is a new task force in place to examine ways to get rid of the Downtown and Midtown Tunnel tolls.
Last week, the Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization unanimously voted to create a working group to do that. The group hasn't met yet, but they are coming together as a region to fight a common foe, and that is the tunnel tolls that will be with us for 50 years.
