Funding for a parallel tunnel at Chesapeake

29 June 2016

The Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel is a 23-mile long toll facility that spans the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay in Virginia, connecting the Delmarva Peninsula and the Hampton Roads area. Plans to expand the bridge-tunnel are currently underway in an effort to improve levels of service, safety and capacity for all travelers. 

Bridging the funding gap

11 December 2013

As our transportation system ages, there is a growing need to repair, rehabilitate, and in some cases add capacity to our infrastructure. This need is arguably at its greatest where bridges are concerned.

In 2012, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) designated a quarter of all U.S. bridges as functionally obsolete or structurally deficient.

The value of tolls in Hampton Roads

29 July 2013

You won’t find Hampton Roads on any map. It’s neither a city nor a town, yet it’s home to 1.7 million people. In actual fact, Hampton Roads is the name given to the metropolitan area of southeastern Virginia that is comprised of ten cities and five counties. Over 60 per cent of the population of the United States is within 750 miles of this stretch and it’s this locational advantage that gives businesses in the area a strategic edge.

Managed lanes on the up

03 January 2013

Managed Lanes are gaining popularity in the US, with a second wave of projects soon to be delivered and many more being considered. While strictly speaking High Occupancy Vehicle lanes are a form of managed lanes, here we focus on fee-based managed lanes, such as High Occupancy/Toll lanes or Express Lanes.

A toll for the season

23 November 2012

Some toll roads now vary toll rates by time of day, but what about by season? We took an innovative pricing approach on Virginia’s Chesapeake Expressway.

Across transportation industries, operators commonly rely on revenue management and variable pricing techniques to generate additional revenue. Usually, this relies on distinguishing between different user segments and the type and level of service they wish to purchase.
