Analyzing and Mitigating the Impact of Tolls
at the Midtown and Downtown Tunnels: DRAFT Report

The Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO), the metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the Hampton Roads metropolitan planning area, has completed the DRAFT Analyzing and Mitigating the Impact of Tolls at the Midtown and Downtown Tunnels report.

On December 5, 2011, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) signed a comprehensive agreement with Elizabeth River Crossings (ERC) for construction of an additional two-lane tube at the Midtown Tunnel, rehabilitation of the Downtown Tunnel, and extension of the MLK Freeway.  As part of the agreement, ERC is permitted to collect tolls on these three facilities, and tolling began at the Midtown and Downtown Tunnels on February 1, 2014.

In response, HRTPO staff began a multi-year study in Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 comparing the “before” and “after” traffic conditions to discover the impact of tolling.  This report provides background information on the project and the comprehensive agreement, examines the projected traffic impacts using the travel demand model, analyzes traffic and transit conditions “before” and “after” toll implementation, and makes recommendations to mitigate these impacts.
