The Details

Elizabeth River Crossings is a company known by its other legal name, Elizabeth River Crossings OpCo, LLC, whose responsibility is to finance, deliver, and maintain the Elizabeth River Tunnels project. It is worth noting that this project includes the construction and further operation of a two-lane tunnel, which is adjacent to the existing Midtown Tunnel under the Elizabeth River.

Elizabeth River Crossings is located between several cities, namely between the city of Portsmouth and Norfolk in Hampton Roads. As part of the tunnel network, the MLK/U.S.58 freeway was extended to I-264, which significantly reduced the overall load of traffic jams on the streets and roads.

Elizabeth River Crossings is operated by Elizabeth River Crossings OpCo, LLC and the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT).

How Elizabeth River Crossings emerged

The traffic fork around South Hampton Roads is quite problematic due to the banks of the Elizabeth River. The busiest vehicular route, I-264, passes through the East Branch of the river (Berkeley Bridge) and the South Branch through a downtown tunnel.

The tunnel, built back in 1952, needs to be renovated as most of it has exceeded its maximum service life. The East Tunnel also needs to be repaired in accordance with NFPA 502.

To expand the capacity of the Midtown Tunnel, the decision was made to implement the Elizabeth Project. It involves an increase in traffic lanes, a comprehensive reconstruction of the Midtown parallel tunnel, and the restoration of a tunnel that runs through the downtown.

How reconstruction took place

According to the Elizabeth Tunnels project, the restoration of one of the key Midtown tunnels involved:

  • dismantling of the old suspended ceiling;
  • dismantling of old, unsuitable for operation, lamps. Instead, they installed economical and energy-efficient LEDs;
  • upgraded the ventilation system.

The restoration works started on August 9, 2013, in the direction from Norfolk to Portsmouth.

Love the app, use it every week
Saved our day when we were on a trip and had to take a toll road on our way home
This App allows us worry-free travel on TOLL ROADS...Automatically replenishing our account, notifying us of Automatically paying our access to the Toll Road. Great relief from expensive citations for not paying while driving. Thank you. P.S. A receipt is always sent to us.
I find this app a good way to track my tolls and manage my budget. Works great for this.
The app saves me a ton extra minutes every day. Took the worry out of paying our tolls. Thank you🌴
Better than a toll tag, I use one app on both vehicles and will link my wife's car next week. Easy to travel to other states, since you're registered with all toll authorities they cover.
Been going back to the office a little so been driving more. This is great.
